Reynolds struggles in race walk

Ireland's Laura Reynolds endured a tough time in the 20-kilometre race walk at the World Championships in Moscow..

In hot and humid conditions, the Mohill AC athlete struggled and could only finish 31st out of 62 competitors.

Reynolds, who recorded a time of one hour 33 minutes and 39 seconds, said: "I'm very disappointed with that.

"31st place explains it all, wasn't a good place wasn't a good time, I don't have an explanation for it.

"My last race in Kazan at World Students I finished sixth, I was happy with finishing sixth.

"I wouldn't have come here if I didn't recover, I just can't explain why it went wrong. I'll have to review this with my coach and see where to go."
