Irish DMR team set for New Balance Indoor Games
An Irish Distance Medley Relay team is set for the New Balance Indoor Games on the 31st of January in the Armory.
It has been in the planning for the last number of months but the athletes have received confirmation today of their entrance into the 1200m, 400m, 800m, 1600m DMR relay.
John Travers will lead out the team on the 1200m leg followed by Brian Gregan on the 400m leg who will hand over to Mark English on the 800m leg with Ciarán Ó Lionáird anchoring the team on the 1600m. Declan Murray is the alternate if anyone pulls out. He may also compete as part of the New Jersey New York Track Club team or in the individual 600m if he’s not selected.
Gregan, Murray and English are all currently on a warm weather training camp in Stellenbosch in South Africa while Ciarán Ó Lionáird is on a training camp in Flagstaff. You can read Ó Lionáird’s blog on the training camp here
