Barr: I want to reach world final
05 May 2015 21:09
Thomas Barr, the European Athlete of the Month for April, has admitted his main hope for the year is to reach the World Athletics Championships 400m hurdle final.
Barr, who clocked a European-leading 400m hurdles time of 49.04 to win at the Tom Jones Classic in Gainesville, USA, on 24 April, to qualify for the worlds, has admitted this could be a push but is hopeful all the same.
“Hopefully I can continue training well and I am going to try to aim towards the World Student Games and World Championships in July and August,” he said.
“I’d love to make it to the final of the worlds, but that might be a push. If I can keep improving on my time we’ll see. I’m not going to call anything, but I’d love to say I’m a World Championships finalist.”
