Karl, moving down a distance to the 400m, dipped under 50secs in the semi-final and in the decider, with a time of 49.52secs, was a popular winner of the very demanding 400m. It was a successful whirlwind of a summer for Karl –running two U20 World Junior qualifying standards and competing successfully in the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona in the World Junior c/ships. 17 year old Karl is eligible for the 2013 European and 2014 World Junior c/ships.

As she entered the home straight, with two sets of obstacles to negotiate, less than one metre separated four athletes –all fighting for 2nd position. Holding her rhythm Kelly seemed to find another gear and gradually moved away from the quartet and closed down on the leader. The finish line appeared too soon – result Richards, Epsom and Newell, 41.84secs; 2nd McGrory, Tir Chonaill, 42.91secs; 3rd Rogers, Birchfield, 43.22secs.
