This is a sort of quasi-European version of the Olympics with different sports co-ordinating their various championships in Glasgow, with the athletics in Berlin.
RTE and BBC are going big on it.
Just watched a bit of the swimming there. Some Scotch guy called Duncan Scott won the men’s 200 metres freestyle from an outside lane in a cracking race, having barely qualified for the final. Our old friend Yulia Efimova won her second gold medal in the 200 metres breaststroke.
RTE’s swimming coverage is top notch, as usual, with John Kenny and Nick O’Hare on commentary, with Earl McCarthy, Grainne Murphy and Andrew Bree in studio.
Bree’s voice and mannerisms are very similar to that of Ian Paisley Junior.
Thomas Barr is running in the semis of the 400 metres hurdles at around 7pm.
