Come meet Paul and get advice on training, competitions, technique and nutrition. Perfect opportunity to meet one of Ireland’s best athletes.
Paul, a native of Athenry, Co. Galway, set multiple Irish records in the 100m and 200m in 2007, records that still stand to this day. The 2007 World Championships also placed Paul firmly with the best, and he finished a solid 12th.
In 2008 Paul competed in the Olympic Games where he memorably won his quarter-final race before coming agonizingly close to making the Final, missing out by a place and finishing 10th overall.
At the 2009 World Championships in Berlin, Paul once again showed his consistency and again finished 10th at a global event..
Paul had targeted a medal at the 2010 European Championships. In the previous 3 seasons he was rarely beaten by a European athlete and had consistency on his side. Ultimately he was disappointed with a 6th place finish and slow times. 2011 presents new challenges as Paul targets his 4th World Championships.
