These Championships took place on Sunday 30th in Athlone and what a huge day it turned out be for Sinead Tynan who was running in the W50 1,500mts. Five athletes toed the line at this level and what a competitive race it turned out to be with less than 5 secs separating the top three athletes at the finish. Sinead set out her stall at the start, never wavering in her quest for glory and after completing just over 7 laps of the indoor arena she crossed the line in a time of 5.38.27 which saw her take the National Silver Medal. A huge effort from Sinead and one richly deserved. Congratulations Sinead on your medal performance.

Ber Spillane was our second athlete in action in this event and despite not coming away with any silverware she put in two great performances. In the W40 60mts she claimed 7th place with a time of 9secs even while turning out again for the 400mts where she was unlucky not to medal finishing 4th in 1.08.10. Well done Ber on your competitive performances.
