Orla Barry from Ladysbridge in Cork upgraded to World Championship silver medal
It was announced today that the Paralympic athlete Orla Barry from Ladysbridge in East Cork will be now be upgraded to a World Championship silver medal after she won a bronze medal at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha last year.
Orla, who originally took bronze in the F57 Discus final will now have a World Championship silver medal to add to her collection following the news that Bulgarian field athlete, Stela Eneva, has been suspended by the IPC for four years for an Anti-Doping Rule violation.
Her silver medal has now been awarded to the Cork athlete, whilst the bronze medal will go to Algeria’s Safia Djelal.
