Live Athletics: European Championships: 2014 Day Five

Live Athletics: European Championships: 2014 Day Five



The night before Scottish runner Lynsey Sharp won silver in the Commonwealth Games 800m, she was on a drip fighting sickness in the athletes’ village clinic. The fact that she still managed to race to a podium finish turned bad luck into one of the feel-good stories of Glasgow. She’s due to race again here in the European Championships, hopefully off the back of a decent night’s sleep.

As well as the women’s 800m final, the penultimate day’s action includes the men’s and women’s 100m and 400m relay heats, and concludes with the women’s 5,000m.


Jonathan Edwards presents coverage of the women's marathon on the fifth and penultimate day of the biennial event in Zurich. The last time this discipline was part of the championships was in 2010, when Italy's Anna Incerti claimed gold in Barcelona. Commentary by Steve Cram, Andrew Cotter and Brendan Foster, and analysis from Colin Jackson, Denise Lewis and Paula Radcliffe, with reports by Phil Jones.
