#TMT Kieran Behan, Irish Gymnast

Kieran Behan claimed silver for his performance on the Floor in the Apparatus Final at the Aquece Rio Test Event in the HSBC Barra Olympic Arena in Rio on Monday.

It’s been a whirlwind 48 hours for the two Irish Gymnasts as Behan’s medal success comes off the back of qualification for both Behan and Ellis O’Reilly for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics.

Behan qualified for the final in 4th place after a strong performance on Saturday night, scoring 14.966 on the floor in the qualifiers. On Monday he scored 15.058 and was in first place for a period before being pushed into second towards the end of the rotation.
