Phil Healy came fourth in the final of the women's 400 metres at the European Indoor Athletics Championships in Poland on Saturday evening.
The Cork native set a new personal best of 51.94 but it wasn't enough with Femke Bol of the Netherlands winning the race with a time of 50.63.
Justyna Swiety-Ersetic of Poland came second with Britain's Jodie Williams just ahead of Healy in third with a time of 51.73.

There was disappointment meanwhile for Nadia Power who came fourth in the women's 800-metres semi-final, with just the top two qualifying.
She ran it in a time of 2:04:04.
Cian McPhillips also came fourth in his 800-metres semi-final, as did Mark English.
18-year-old Longford native McPhillips ran a strong race, setting a new European U-20 record with a time of 1:48.06 while English, who previously won a silver and bronze at the European indoors, couldn't find a burst in his final lap and like his team-mates, had to settle for fourth with a time of 1:48:99.
