Greta qualifies for Paralympics final

Clonliffe’s Greta Streimikyte was in impressive form in her T13 1500 heat in Tokyo today qualifying comfortably for her second Paralympic final, having achieved likewise in Rio in 2016.

Greta led for most of the race and was not overly concerned when Menigstu (ETH) , who had kept pace with her throughout the race, overtook her in the closing stages and with four to qualify she progressed very comfortably in a time of 4.45.98 for tomorrow’s final.
