Full Results of Galway Track and Field Champs 2009

Three fantastic night's of track-based action in Dangan - what more could you ask for?

Great credit for the ongoing success of the re-vamped Galway Track and Field Championships has to go to Paul McNamara, Regional Development Officer for the AAI in the West of Ireland. All of the Galway Athletics Clubs owe Paul a huge 'Thank You' for his efforts on their behalf in organising these hugely enjoyable summer nights on the University Track.

Renowned Hollymount scholar dies in Liverpool

Michael Commins

ONE of Mayo’s most renowned scholars, Tom Reilly, formerly from Lehinch, Hollymount, has died in Liverpool. Tom was Professor of Sports Science and Director of the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moore’s University. Such was his standing in Britain that he served as sports science consultant with the British Olympic Association from 1992 to 2002.

Paul Hession First Past The Post In Lausanne

Paul Hession was first past the post in the second of tonight's two high class 200m races at the IAAF Super Grand Prix meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland. So many high-class sprinters had been invited to the meeting that the race was effectively split in two and the results of the individual races were then combined. Paul was placed third overall behind Usain Bolt (Jam) and LeShawn Merritt (USA).

A fantastic performance from the fastest man from the west...

Next Stop Tullamore

Tullamore hosts the AAI MASTERS T&F CHAMPS on Sunday 16 August. The Masters' age categories begin at 35 and the championships have all the usual track events up to 5k for men, and up to 3k for women. And also a full program of field events. (I hear MB is going for the javelin).

It usually takes a fast time or a long throw to win a medal in a category but many average club athletes compete also so no need to be fearful.
