Mageean using Euros to prepare for Rio

Ciara Mageean's build-up to the Olympic Games in Rio continues when she competes in the European Athletics Championships.

The Portaferry runner is competing in the 1500 metres in Amsterdam, glad to get some much-needed Championship racing.

The 23-year-old is looking forward to the Olympics, having missed out on a place in London 2012.
