John Travers through to 1500 final after appeal

John Travers (Donore Harriers) has advanced to the men's 1500m final after an appeal following a seventh place finish in 3:59.72 in his heat.

A false start recall led to him stopping for several seconds along with Spanish athlete Marc Alcala. Team manager Patsy McGonagle successfully appealed afterwards where Alcala also advanced with the referee citing rule 146.3.
