Belfast International 400m Hurdles line up boosted by the addition of Jessie Barr

Northern Ireland's 2014 European 400mH Semi-Finalist Christine McMahon

2014 European 400mH Semi-Finalist Christine McMahon (Ballymena & Antrim) (PB 56.97) will face the stiff competition she is looking for at the Belfast International with the addition of 2012 European Championship finalist Jessie Barr (Ferrybank AC) (PB 55.93). The Irish international pair will be up against some of the UK’s best 400m hurdlers, including Loughborough based duo Jess Turner (PB 57.43) and Georgia Rodgers (PB 59.20).  It is anticipated that the strong field will push each other to personal bests and European and perhaps Olympic qualification times. This could be one of the highlights of the International.
