Heartiest congratulations to Sinéad Diver on her selection to represent Australia in the World Championships. It’s been an amazing journey for the Belmullet native and this is fantastic news. We’ve followed her progress with South Melbourne AC over the past year since she recorded brilliant times over half and full marathon, having only taken up running just over four years ago.
As Sinéad says “I’m so excited and proud (and a teensy bit emotional) to confirm that I have beenselected to represent Australia in the marathon at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing. Thank you to everyone for all the support and encouragement. A massive thank you to my family, friends, coach and all those who have helped make this dream a reality, without these people it would not be happening..”
Her selection is great honour for our club and we will continue to record her results and preparation in the run up to her marathon race in Beijing at the end of August.
