Joy For Phil Healy As She Eases Into Semi-Finals At European Championships

Phil Healy has secured her passage into the 200m semi-finals at the European Championships after easing through her heat this morning in Berlin. 

Healy, who also competed in the 100m earlier in the week, is hoping to reach the final of the 200m and she has completed the first step by gaining passage into the semi-finals.

Healy finished third in her heat which qualifies her automatically for the semi-finals in a time of 23.34.

The Cork woman came off the bend strong and was in a strong position for second only to be pipped by Gloria Hooper of Italy as the finish line was approaching.

It wasn’t the fastest heat but Healy will have plenty in the tank come the semi-finals when the Top-12 ranked European athletes enter the fray.
