In what was a fantastic week for the Irish squad the best was saved until the last day when Sarah Healy turned in an emphatic performance to take the EYOF 1500m title in Gyor yesterday. The win was all the more sweet as she produced a new Personal Best in the championship final of 4.19.85. Once Sarah took control of proceedings mid way through the race, there was no looking back as she turned on the style with a scintillating last 400m. And just in case you haven’t seen her majestic performance please click here to relive the magical moments.

Congratulations to Sarah on her fantastic run and European Youths Olympic title from everyone at the club.

Lara storms to Silver medal in EYOF cycling Time trial

Comments Off on Lara storms to Silver medal in EYOF cycling Time trial Uncategorized

Congratulations to club athlete Lara Gilespie who clinched a silver medal for Cycling Ireland with an outstanding display in the EYOF Girls Time trial in Gyor last Tuesday. Lara also finished 18th in the road race on Thursday and but for an early race fall in challenging weather conditions, she surely would have figured prominently again. Well done to Lara on a superb few days.
