Sixth and final episode of London Calling now on the RTE Player
Description..."Bouncing back from his medical setback in Paris, Brian Gregan (400m Sprinter) wins silver at the U23 Championships. But before he can focus on getting to London he has to finish his degree. His thesis takes up so much time that he enters the season with very little training and low expectations. But as he journeys across Europe his stellar performances mean he is getting closer and closer to the qualifying time. With his parents following every move from home he enters the European Championships with a real shot at the time and a medal.
Having recovered from her injury in Belfast, Marian Heffernan and the 4 x 400m team re- double their efforts to secure qualification. To make sure of their place they travel to Poland, but not everything goes according to plan. This sets up their make or break event, the European Athletics Championships in Helsinki. But disaster strikes and they are disqualified. Will their work over the previous two years be enough to get them to the Olympics?"
Brian is on from the start until 8:40
Rob and Marian are on from 14:55 to 21:18
