Gold! Michael O'Hara wins 200m at World Youth Champs
Michael O'Hara ran a time of 20.62 to take the gold in the Boys’ 200m final at the the IAAF World Youth Championships in Donetsk, Ukraine minutes ago.
O'Hara, who was left kicking himself after a fourth-place finish in the 100m final on Thursday, has had a struggle getting over that disappointment but has bounced back beautifully.
After a 21.17 seconds win in the 200m semi-final yesterday O’Hara said, "The semi was good. I just did what was needed to qualify for the final, so I am happy with the run," O'Hara offered.
"It took a while for me to get back mentally from that fourth place in the 100m, but I am now looking at this 200m as an opportunity to bounce back and I'm just looking forward to doing my best out there," O'Hara added.
