Ireland have qualified for the 4x100m final at the U20 World Championships in Tampere in Finland after a superb heat saw the Irish team finish first in a time of 44.27.
Molly Scott, Gina Akpe-Moses, Rhasidat Adeleke and Patience Jumbo-Gula ran an excellent race to achieve the second fastest time overall when all the heats were taken into account.
The quartet will race in the final tomorrow and they have a huge chance of a medal if they perform like they did today.
Sick stuff from these four: heat winners and into a world 4x100m final – a final without the Jamaicans and Americans – as the second fastest overall. pic.twitter.com/JsAlkrnYXQ
