PODCAST PART ONE: ENGLISH UPGRADES TO SILVER
Our usual podcast seemed a tad long so we took it upon ourselves to divide it in two.
Part One deals with the European Championships and has interviews with Mark English and Ciara Everard.
For the Irish it was always about Mark English and he moved from man of bronze to man of silver.
The UCD student was delighted to land silver in 1:47.20 in a high quality race won by Poland’s Marcin Lewandowski in 1:46.67 and we hear is reaction to the race.
We rate the Irish performances and give our international stars of the championships. We then delve into the nationality debate and discuss the way forward on this multilayered subject.
Finally we look at the Irish Schools Cross Country Championships where the star distance runners of the future were competing in the picturesque Clongowes Wood College. Find out all about the day and why some challenges that arose weren’t Ronan Duggan’s fault. They really weren’t. All that and more in our latest offering.
