Aníta Hinriksdóttir 8th in Amsterdam

Icelandic runner Aníta Hinriksdóttir came 8th in the 800m finals at the European Athletic Championships 2016 in Amsterdam, she had good speed during the first round but had slowed down a bit during the later round and came in on 2:02:55, that is far from her best. The run that got her into the finals was 2:01,41, more than minute better time than today.

This is a great experience for the young runner, who turned 20 earlier this year, and a good preparation for the upcoming Rio Olympics were she will be participating for Iceland.

Hinriksdóttir comes from Reykjavik based sports club ÍR and is coached by Gunnar Páll Jóakimsson.
