The Cork athlete appeared on 'Saturday Night With Miriam' after winning a silver medal at the European Championships in Barcelona in 2010.

This was a second European silver for Derval O'Rourke who had also come second in the 100 hurdles at the 2006 European Championships in Gothenburg and set a new Irish record each time.

In this interview, O'Rourke talks to Miriam O'Callaghan, about how her joy at winning a silver medal is tinged with regret that it was not gold. As for what she's thinking while running: 

My thoughts are so simple. I'm thinking, run like hell, kill them, go, go, kill them. I never think about running fast.... The hurdles are just, I think get every hurdle out of the way, get it out of the way and move on to the next one.


This edition of 'Saturday Night With Miram' was broadcast on 7 August 2010.
