Mark English in men’s 800m final after winning appeal

Donegal athlete Mark English WILL run in Sunday’s men’s 800 metres final at the European Indoor Athletics Championships in Glasgow after winning an appeal on Saturday evening.

English took a tumble with GB runner Guy Learmonth during his semi-final heat. He recovered to finish fifth in a time of 1:50.70.

However, Learmonth was disqualified after the race and English was awarded a place in the final on appeal.

The Donegal man will now line up for Ireland in Sunday’s final.
