BIOGRAPHY 

Louise was a European Youth champion at 800m in 2013 and a European Youth Olympic finalist in 2014. Injury then disrupted her career but she bounced back as Irish 1500m champion last year and her 800m victory at Nationals this year (2:03.62) critically moved her up three places into the top-48 ranking that clinched her Olympic spot. She is a PhD student of quantum physics at Cambridge and her dad Ray was also an Irish champion.
