This is the most dramatic finish to a race we’ve ever seen

Last weekend’s Irish Intervarsity Track and Field Championships produced one of the most dramatic races we’ve ever seen, writes Stephen Barry.

UCC’s Phil Healy began the anchor leg of the Women’s 4 x 400 metres relay final in fifth and the best part of 100 metres behind runaway leaders UCD, but soon began to catch up.

Or in the commentator’s words: “UCC from the depths of hell are powering through!”

Check out what happens next…

It just goes to prove that relays are the best!

Well done to Phil and the rest of the UCC team, Christine Neville, Niamh Moore and Louise Shanahan.
