Sunday 21, Connacht Indoors Championships (Athlone IT) We had our two sprinters in action.

John Walkin competed in the masters 60 metres finishing in an excellent third place. He’s “extremely happy with result, but even more so of the time 7.65 as I ran 7.81 in January winning Munster Masters men’s title”. John plans to keep improving for the National Masters Indoors next month, having taken a major step in right direction in Athlone.

Declan Owens finished fourth in the Senior 60 metres in 7.89, almost equalling his pb of 7.88 in the University Championships a week ago.
