Van Commenee's hopes for NI athletics

UK Athletics' coach Charles van Commenee is optimistic that Northern Ireland's "investment in coaching" will help to develop more top athletes.

The Dutchman says he monitors the progress of Northern Ireland athletics and is optimistic that 400m talent Katie Kirk will continue to develop after reaching this year's European Junior Final.

Van Commenee was in Belfast on Thursday to give a talk to local coaches.
