Melbourne-based Mayo AC member Sinéad Diver had a very big performance in the Tasmanian Running Festival last weekend – June 3.
Just four seconds behind was Sinéad’s team mate from the 2018 World Half Marathon Championship, Ellie Pashley who ran 32:03.
Both Sinéad and Ellie ran the fastest 10k road race times in Australia since former World Cross Country Champion Benita Willis ran 31:45 in Burnie in 2002.
Congratulations from all of us at Mayo AC on a truly remarkable performance.
The course was re-accredited by an AIMS course measurer on the day, so it is a fully legitimate performance and recognised by the IAAF on her athlete profile.
Sinéad’s Launceston 10k finish time is 50 seconds faster than the leading woman on the 2018 Irish performance list, Emma Mitchell.
Ironically, Emma Mitchell running for Northern Ireland finished 15th in 32:49 in 10,000 metres Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast Queensland Australia on April 9 last.
