McKillop strikes for gold again
23 Aug 2014 19:07
Ireland’s Michael McKillop has claimed his second gold at the Paralympic Athletics European Championships in Swansea, adding the T38 1500m title to his 800m title
McKillop won in a time of 4:16.73 ahead of Louis Radius of France in 4:21.44, and Dean Miller of Great Britain in 4:22.24.
Although the 24-year-old Antrim athlete, who is reigning Paralympic, world champion and world record holder at 800m and 1500m was the favourite on paper for today’s final, championship races rarely go to plan.
Having been sidelined for the vast majority of the last year with a serious foot injury this was only McKillop third 1500m of the season.
