Fionnuala Britton successfully defended her individual title and while her position helped greatly it was powerful performances by Linda Byrne (8th), Ava Hutchinson (20th) and Lizzie Lee (23rd) that clinched the unprecedented shock win for the Irish team.

The best position prior to the double gold result was a silver medal in 2003 with a team that included Sonia O’Sullivan and Catherine McKiernan.

Teresa McDaid, National Athletics’ coach of the year in 2011 and 2012, was appointed to her position in November last in succession to Anne Keenan Buckley.
