Irish runner Phil Healy finished 7th in the semi-final of the women’s 100m at the European Championships in Berlin meaning that she will not qualify for the final.
Healy finished with a time of 11.46 seconds which sees her eliminated from final contention, despite a promising run.
Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith was the winner of the first semi-final clocking up an impressive time of 10.93 seconds on the way to victory.
Well done Phil Healy, 7th in the semi final in 11.46. Not enough to go through to the final but a tough run from lane 1

Healy must now look ahead to the 200m on Friday, and speaking after the race she called it “a stepping stone to the 200m”
“I’m happy with that. It’s one of my best 100m races. A stepping stone to the 200m now,”
