Mageean thrilled by Rio standard news

Ciara Mageean says she was "over the moon" after hearing that she has now almost certainly booked her spot at next year's Rio Olympics

The Portaferry woman, 23, received an unexpected boost last week when the Rio 1500m qualifying standard was amended to four minutes and seven seconds.

Mageean twice ran under 4:07.00 last summer with her personal best 4:06.49.
