Mary Peters Track, Belfast was the ideal setting for the IUAA Intervarsities track and field outdoor championships on Friday and Saturday last, the venue avoided the worst of Storm Kathleen, strong winds minus the rain is what the athletes had to contend with on what was the first outdoor outing of 2024 season for track and field athletes. Katie Bergin in the colour’s of UCC on this occasion took to the track on Friday afternoon in the heats of the 200m, and was a convincing winner of her heat, which placed her in lane six in the final on Saturday. As on previous occasions Katie stormed out of the blocks and into a commanding lead in the first forty come fifty metres and held that position all the way to the finish. Job done and another National Title to add to the two U/23 60m and 200m already won in 2024. On Saturday also she was part of the UCC 4x100m relay team that won silver. Away on warm weather training in Tenerife now for a couple of weeks hopefully the benefit of that will be seen when she returns to The Mary Peters Track in early May for the Irish Milers Meet a World Athletics Bronze Tour event. Congrats and well done Katie.
