Watch: Niamh McCarthy Takes Home Discus Gold In Berlin

Niamh McCarthy managed to obliterate the competition with a fantastic showing at the World Para Athletics European Championships in Berlin to take home gold.

What a performance from the 24-year-old from Cork!

Niamh McCarthy managed to lay down an impressive foundation back in May when she broke the European record in Rieti Grand Prix in Italy and when her time came around today, she well and truly delivered the goods.

Her throw of 31:76 managed to beat the second-placed Renata Sliwinska by a margin of around 10 metres.

She tops off a fantastic tournament for the Irish who managed to take home nine medals – six of which being gold.
