Mark English has described as ‘amazing’ his winning of a third European medal this evening in Glasgow.
By Chris McNulty, at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow
English finished in 1:47.39 to finish behind Álvaro de Arriba from Spain and Britain’s Jamie Webb. The bronze nugget follows his European bronze from 2014 and a European Indoor silver from 2015.
“It feels amazing,” English told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub immediately after his race.
“It was great, just to get a medal again. It’s fantastic.
“I’m just delighted to come away with a medal. This means a lot to come back here and get a medal after a four-year absence. It’s pretty special.”
English was never outside the top three in the race, but revealed he had some doubts as he rounded the final bend.
He said: “I didn’t think I was going to hang on. I thought he was going to come on the outside and it was going to be deza vu but I held on nicely.”
