Mageean is 10th in World Juniors

Ciara Mageean had to settle for 10th place in the 1500 metres final at the World Junior Championships in Poland.

The 16-year-old Portaferry athlete had produced a great performance to qualify for the final as a fastest loser but found Sunday's race a bridge too bar.

British talent Stephanie Twell took victory in 4:15.09 ahead of Ethiopia's Kalkidan Gezahegne (4:16.58) and another Briton Emma Pallant (4:17.06).

Mageean's time of 4:26.87 was over five seconds outside her PB set on Friday.

However, she should be proud of her performance in reaching the final after a season which also saw her claiming the Irish Senior Indoor 1500m title.
