TRIPLE EUROPEAN MEDALLIST

Mark English is making history with each step he takes. Tokyo 2020 will be Mark English’s second Olympics. He made the semi-finals in 2016 and now wants to become the first Irishman to medal in an Olympic Track Final. He is the first Irish athlete to medal at every Championship final he qualified in at 800m. At the 2014 European Athletics Championships, he won a bronze medal in the 800 metres event and at the 2015 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Prague, he won a silver medal.

In 2014, he finished 2nd at the Adidas Grand Prix as part of the 2014 IAAF Diamond League. English finished 4th at the 2014 IAAF Continental Cup, representing Team Europe. English won a bronze medal in the 800 metres at the 2019 European Athletics Indoor Championships. Following this, the RTÉ analyst Jerry Kiernan (himself a former athlete) described English as historically the country’s “greatest talent” in middle-distance running. He graduated in June 2019 as medical doctor from UCD & is currently working in Dublin as a doctor & training in pursuit of achieving an Olympic medal.
