Watch Thomas Barr show off his hurdling skills in the 4x400m relay

Not content with winning bronze in the men’s 400m hurdles last night in Berlin, Thomas Barr showed off his hurdling skills in this morning's 4x400m relay race.

The Waterford man, who won a dramatic battle for bronze against France’s Ludvy Vaillant last night, was on hand to partner Christopher O’Donnell, Brandon Arrey and Leon Reid in this morning's semi-final at the European Athletics Championships.

However, at the final hand-off of the race, the 26-year-old had to clear a human obstacle in order to run Ireland's final lap.

As you can see below.

Unfortunately, Ireland didn't qualify for the final after their time of 3:06.55 wasn't enough to claim the fastest loser place.
