WATCH: Waterford's Thomas Barr pulled off heroics in Ireland's 4x400m relay heat

Waterford's Thomas Barr was back on the track in Berlin on Friday after his historic bronze medal in the 400m hurdles on Thursday evening. 

Barr partnered Christopher O’Donnell, Brandon Arrey and Leon Reid in the semi-finals of the 4x400m relay event. During the race, Barr had to draw on all of his hurdling ability as he had to clear a fallen opponent as he began his leg of the race.

Despite the heroics, Barr and his teammates finished in 5th spot and missed out on progression to the next stage.
