The Story of David: Campbell’s new calling as Purcell cleans up

This week we’re joined by former international middle distance athlete David Campbell, who is now physio to the stars. David talks about what it’s like to work with some of the best athletes in the world, and what their daily routines are like. He also explains why he believes more Irish athletes need to take chances and be more professional in their attitude to reach the world class level.

We round up all the latest results from the schools and further afield, and pick out our star of the week in a period when several youngsters rose to prominence. We debate the format of the national league, and ask whether it’s time for a shake-up.

Switching codes, we ask who would comprise an all-Irish-Athletics GAA team, and stick our necks on the chopping block, tell you no lies, and decide who will be the first Irish woman to break two minutes.

Con Houlihan once told me that tomorrow is now. In taking on this venture I’ve started to try and put his words into action.

I worked for Con from 2007 till his passing in 2012 taking down his copy and a whole lot more. I have a Con Houlihan section which will go in to more depth on that.

I’m a long-time contributor to the Irish Runner magazine and am also working for the Irish Examiner.
