Podcast: Britton bounces back, Ritz Returns, but cross problems still unsolved
This week, we cast our eyes back to the freezing hills of Scotland, where the world’s best athletes gathered to run cross country.
Cathal Dennehy caught up with many of them on his day trip to Edinburgh; Fionnuala Britton talks about her second-place finish and plans for the year. Bernard Lagat tells us how despite his poor performance, everything looks in good shape for a big indoor season. Dathan Ritzenhein tells us about his journey back from injury and also gives his views on the doping scandals which have rocked athletics.
Meanwhile, Providence head coach Ray Treacy discusses the importance of cross country for middle distance runners, and tells us why he thinks the scholarship route is still the best one. Brendan Foster also weighs in on how to revive cross country.
We review all of last week’s indoor action in Athlone, and tell you why there’s trouble in Carlow cross country circles. Ronan Duggan also offers up his opinion on the first of our products from Runways, the Mizuno Wave Inspire.
