Podcast Part Two: Students Shine at School’s Cross

Our usual podcast seemed a tad long so we took it upon ourselves to divide it in two.

Part two deals with Non European ( read faster) Athletes at the European Championships and also the schools 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.

He was once a promising athlete but is now a promising coach, teacher and part-time athletics writer/broadcaster. While an 800m runner himself, Ronan has coached everything from pole vault to 10km with varying levels of bluffing. He has regularly been threatening to do something for years but is yet to deliver. He is regarded as our expert on the American running scene, though has yet, to prove his knowledge in this realm.
