Becker Stands Tall In Euro Indoors

Sophie Becker took part in her second European indoor championship on Friday in Istanbul.

It sadly ended in disappointment as Sophie bowed out of the 400 metres having finished third in her heat in 53.43 seconds.

The top two in each heat qualified for the semi-final along with the two fastest non-qualifiers.  The time unfortunately wasn’t enough as the two fastest qualifiers posted sub-53 second times.

It was disappointment for Becker who missed out on the semi-final.

Sophie though will be back in action today in the women’s 4×400 metre relay, where Ireland will have a good team.
