Dean Casey (Ennis Track Club) has come thirteenth in the men’s 5,000m World U20 Athletics Championship final.

The Clare man produced a strong, tactical performance throughout the 5,000m, showing a maturity in his running far beyond years.

Casey maintained his position within the leading pack of the 22-man competition, crossing the line with 14:37.79 on the clock. The gold medal winner Ethiopia’s Addisu Yihune crossed the line in a time of 14:03.05.

After a successful opening day for Team Ireland at the World U20 Championships, the Irish singlet returns to the Cali stadium tomorrow at 6:05pm with Lucy McGlynn taking to the women’s 400mH heats.
