Letterkenny athlete Mark English has made it by to the semi-finals of the 800 metres on the World Championships in Hungary.

The Finn Valley man posted a season’s better of 1.45.71 and certified as a quickest runner-up.

English needed to overcome a stumble after about 300 metres to complete fourth in his warmth with solely the primary three athletes qualifying.

The Donegal man completed strongly and put himself in with a robust likelihood.

Mark was compelled to look at all the opposite athletes compete within the seven heats earlier than figuring out he was safely by.

He’ll now race in these semi-finals on Thursday.
