The silver medal is Ireland’s first ever relay medal at the championships and only Ireland’s third ever medal at this level.
They’ve only gone and done it! Fantastic run in the 4×100 relay. 43.90 for @RunMollyRun13, @GinaAkpeMoses, @ciara_nev100 and @Patience_Jumbo.
Incredible pace from Patience at the end!
