Sally Brown Wins Bronze in IPC 200 Final & through to 100m Final


IPC World Championships Monday 24th:
Following her bronze medal in the T46 200m, sprinter Sally Brown (coach: Philip Tweedy) made it through to the final in the 100m. Brown qualified as a fastest loser after finishing fourth in her T46 event in a new lifetime best (13.21 (+0.4m/s)).

Sunday 23rd:
Springwell’s Sally Brown (coach: Philip Tweedy), on her senior international debut, exceeded all expectations to take bronze in the T46 200m (26.38 (-0.6m/s)).

“I can’t believe it; last night I felt lucky enough to get into the final,” said the sole Northern Ireland representative on the team and one of the youngest members of the squad at only 15 years-old.

“My goal was to get to the final and to PB and I did both, but when I came off the bend I thought “Oh no, I’m going to come last”, but I focused on the fact that I’d gone into the final as fourth fastest and that gave me confidence. I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet!”
