Lauren Cadden & Ireland run for medal on final night of Euros

The Ireland women’s 4 x 400 metres relay team will run for a medal this Wednesday evening – in final session of this year’s European Athletics Championships in Rome.

Sligo AC’s Lauren Cadden is part of the Ireland squad, who qualifed fastest from Tuesday’s semi-final heats.

Cadden ran the third leg of the relay in Ireland’s semi-final win – but her place on the start line for the final is likely to be taken by individual silver-medallist Rhasida Adeleke.

Wednesday’s final is scheduled to begin at 8:05pm Irish time – and it will be televised live on RTÉ2.

Lauren’s coach, Dermot McDermott, has been speaking of Ocean FM Sport’s Austin O’Callaghan ahead of the big race.
