European Championships 4th place

15th August 2014 – Christine went into the European T&F Championships in Zurich short of race fitness and came away with a 4th position, not the gold medal she wanted, but a satisfactory exercise as she looks ahead to 2015 and 2016. Having won the Olympic Games, World T&F Championships twice and Commonwealth Games it would have been nice to add the European title. However it wasn’t meant to be in Zurich as the trainig nissed due to an early seaosn injury caught up with her over the three races. In the final Libania Gregot (51.10), Olha Zemlyak (51.36) and Indira Terrero (51.38) took the medals. Christine’s final time was the same as the bronze medal winner (51.38) having clocked 51.40 in the heat and 52.56 in the semi-final.
