Ciara Mageean has secured a silver medal in the final of the 1500m at the European Athletics Championships in Munich.

The City of Lisburn AC athlete produced the greatest performance of her career to claim the silver medal in a time of 4.02.56 which was her fastest 1500m this season.

Tonight’s silver medal adds to the bronze medals Mageean picked up at these championships back in 2016, and the European indoors bronze medal in 2019. It also completes a remarkable month for the Portaferry athlete which also saw her claim a brilliant silver medal at the Commonwealth Games.

There was a quiet confidence exuding from Mageean all this week, and her silver medal winning performance matched that confidence, with the two-time Olympian executing a superbly judged race which saw her as the only challenger to eventual winner Laura Muir (GBR).

Although the nature performance would suggest Mageean had gold on her mind, which is testament to the season she’s had, the silver medal marks one of the major highlights of her already illustrious career.
