An Irish team of 10 has been sent to Belgrade for the European Athletics Indoor Championships, which take place over the next three days at the Kombank Arena, starting this morning.
Ciara Mageean goes into the Championships having claimed bronze in the 1,500m at the outdoor Europeans last summer in Amsterdam.
Brian Gregan previously won silver at the European U-23s, while Phil Healy came within one-hundredth of a second of the Irish 60m record at last month’s AIT Grand Prix in Athlone.
Kerry O’Flaherty swaps the steeplechase for flat action indoors over 1,500m, alongside Mageean.
