The Moyne AC sprint star had a busy weekend at 2 events held in the newly refurbished Morton Stadium beginning on Friday night at the prestigious Morton games – A World ranked Bronze Tour event. Katie will go into the record books as the club’s first athlete’s to get an invite to these Games. A stage that attracts top athletes from home and overseas to come together on a Friday night in July to battle for top honours from 100m – magic mile up to 5000m and field events. This year’s programme was full of quality across the board where spectators including some worthy athletic VIPS who came to  witness excellent competition coupled with the taxing weather conditions (such is the Irish weather) it was real exciting. Katie came into the event ranked 8th in the 200m but obviously she outran her odds and looked right at home as she ran a fantastic bend and powered down the home straight finishing 5th leaving two internationals and a 2021 Olympian in her wake. A super impressive run clocking 24.49.


On Sunday Katie returned to the same Morton Stadium to compete in AI Games this time in the 100m. Prior to Sunday Katie’s 100m time has been stubbornly stuck on 12.0s flat. Now a distant memory! That morning in Series 1 of the 100m she ran 11.86s +4.4m/s wind. Later in the afternoon for Series 2 of the 100m Katie followed up impressively with another quick time of 11.80s, +2.2m/s wind, finishing 4th overall on the day. Katie is the first club athlete to run sub 12 seconds and consecutively. The previous best 100m time from a Moyne AC athlete was Monica Campion in 1989 which stood at 12.76s. Well done to Katie and long may the accustomed success continue.


Patrick & Brian – on the roads again!


On Friday night Pakie Bowe attended the Clerihan 8k road race. He ran another consistent race finishing in 17th place overall in a time of 34.54. Well done to him. On Sunday morning Brian Carroll was out in the Fingal 10k in Dublin. A popular road race which attracted good calibre of athletes. Brian ran very well finishing 159th out of 2255 athletes on the day in a time of 39.45. Best of luck to both men as they begin preparations for their respected Autumn marathons which are fast approaching.
