Brian Fay Competes In Europe

Brian Fay made his senior international debut at the European indoor championship 3,000m finishing seventh in his heat.

Fay produced an impressive performance having received a late call up to the Irish panel and posting 7:56.13 to take seventh place just outside his personal best.

The race was won by Jimmy Gressier of France in 7:48.93 with Belgium’s Isaac Kimeli second in 7:49.46 and third place went to 1500m champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen taking third and the final qualifying place in 7:49.52.

A very impressive performance by Fay in what will undoubtedly be the first of many senior international appearances.
