Our two sprinters competed as guests at the Leinster Indoor Masters Track & Field Championships last Sunday. John Walkin won the M35 60 metres race in 7.70. He’s delighted as it consolidates his success in the same event at the Munster Indoor Masters in January which he also won while competing as guest. His time in Leinster was 0.11 seconds faster. It all looks good for John as he heads for Athlone on March 20 where he will be joined by six masters clubmates competing in the National Indoor Masters Track & Field championships. John is entered in both the 60 and 200 metres.
Our senior sprinter Declan Owens who also competed in the Leinster Indoors finished fifth in his heat of the 60 metres in 7.98. He did not progress to the final which was won in 6.98.
