Orla Comerford competed in her second Paralympic Games in Tokyo taking fourth place in her T13 100m heat.
Comerford posted 12.87 seconds for fourth place with the race won by Elena Chebnu of Azerbijian in 12.16 seconds. Adiaratou Iglesias Forneiro of Spain was second in 12.20 seconds.
Indonesia Putri Aulia took third place in 12.55 seconds.
The top two from each of the three heats and the two fastest losers progressed to the final, unfortunately Orla finished outside this position.
The biggest congratulations to Orla on her performance in very tough circumstances. We have know doubt that her coach Brian Corcoran is very proud of her watching from the heavens.
We know Orla will back on the World stage yet again.
