Mageean wins silver in women's 1500 final

Sunday 7th August 2022

Coiste Chontae an Dúin and the family that is Down GAA would like to extend our congratulations to Ciara Mageean on winning a Silver Medal tonight in the 1500m at the Commonwealth Games, this is a great achievement for Ciara, and we extend our congratulations to her family and to the Gaels of Portaferry.

Ciara has always been a good friend to Down GAA and we look forward to seeing her at home again and attending our Championship Fixtures in the weeks ahead.

Mageean ran a superb race to finish second behind Laura Muir. The 30-year-old led early at Alexandra Stadium and was the only runner to stay in touch with Muir after the Scot moved in front with over a lap remaining.

Mageean was well clear of Australia's Abbey Caldwell in third as she took silver in a time of 4.04.14.
