Athletics: O’Rourke now sets sights on World Cup

The prestigious World Cup in a few weeks' time is Derval O'Rourke's next big target following her silver medal-winning heroics in the European Championships.

O'Rourke has been invited to represent Europe at the event, which takes place in Croatia on September 4-5.

“I'm honoured to have been selected on the European team for the World Cup,” said the 100m hurdler after she arrived back in Dublin Airport to a warm reception.

“This is an event I've always wanted to compete in because it brings the very best together in what seems like a unique event.”

O'Rourke’s conqueror in Barcelona, Nevin Yanit of Turkey, may also be in the World Cup line-up.
