So Long Summer; Records, Returns and Retirements
As we wave farewell to the track season, we pick out the Irish athletes who shone brightest this summer.
Which Meathman did we deem the Irish junior athlete of the year? Who shocked us all with their stunning performance at a mid-summer meet on home turf? Which athlete resurrected their career and now has the honour to be given our ‘comeback of the year’ title?
It wasn’t all positive, though, and we also pick out our lowlights of the summer from an Irish perspective; from positive drug tests to AAI’s lack of consistency in selection criteria, it’s all covered.
Looking ahead, we tell you what to watch this weekend as the road season gets into full swing, and who will probably win Sunday’s Berlin marathon.
