Galligan fails to progress
Ireland's Rose-Anne Galligan was unable to progress from the 800 metres heats at the World Championships.
A day after Rob Heffernan's historic gold medal in the 50km race walk, the Newbridge AC runner had hoped to secure a spot in the semi-finals.
However, Galligan could only finish seventh in a time of two minutes 02.05 seconds in her heat.
"I was ranked 28th coming into the championships and knew only 16 would progress, so I knew I had a very slim chance of getting through, but I was determined," she said.
"I'll learn from this race. I'll take it as motivation into next year for World Indoors and European Outdoors. I gave it all I had out there today and I am proud of myself for that."
Ireland's final competitor in Moscow is Paul Pollock, who goes in the marathon on Saturday.
