Sommer Lecky put in a brave performance but was outside the medals in the European Under-20 Athletics Championships in Sweden.

The Finn Valley AC teenager cleared 1.75 metres on her first attempt. She was unsuccessful with her first jump over 1.80 m but cleared it the second time.

However, she was unable to clear 1.84 m and so made her exit, and will have been somewhat disappointed having had a season's best previously of 1.86m.

She finished fifth overall.

"I'm kind of gutted because I knew 1.87m was in me today but you have to perform on the day. But I can take this championships away with me and it'll definitely help me progress," she said.
