A 19-year-old who moved to Ireland as a refugee two years ago has won U20 bronze for Ireland at the Euro Cross Country Championships.
Efrem Gidey, who came from Eritrea, finished third on his international debut with a time of 19:01, just seconds behind second place Ayetullah Aslanhan of Turkey.
Speaking after the race, which was won by Jakob Ingerbrigtsen of Norway, the Clonliffe Harriers athlete said: "Before I was thinking that I need a top ten place.
"But to get a spot in third place, it makes me so happy, I don't believe it and it's just amazing."
Gidey's journey to Ireland involved spending a considerable amount of time in the Calais refugee camp among others.
