Alongside, Molly Scott and Ciara Neville, the duo blitzed their way to second place, just behind winners Germany, in a time of 43.90 - setting a new national U20 record in the process.

Yesterday, the quartet combined to win their heat in the second-fastest qualifying time.
Akpe-Moses made waves 12 months ago when she claimed gold in the 100m at the European U20 Championships, while Jumbo-Gula almost followed her lead last week having finished just outside the medals at the U18 version in Hungary.
Blackrock AC's Akpe-Moses came eighth in the 100m final on Thursday.
