ATHLETICS: CHRIS AND SARAH PICKED TO JOIN IRISH TEAM AT EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

first_imgBudapest bound for European Cross Country Championships this week are two Donegal club athletes.Finn Valley’s Sarah Collins who carries a medal hope in the junior women and Chris Johnson from Letterkenny AC in the under 23 national team.It’s an exciting challenge for both. Sarah has just had an absoluitely remarkable year to date highlights being participation in the world junior ( u-20) track champs in Barcelona and in recent weeks a top 10 finish in the Ncaa x country for Providence in Kentucky.She arrives in the Hungarian city Friday accompanied by her family and competes Sunday and is off back to Boston Monday to sit exams before returning home for Christmas.Christopher a student at UCD is the national u 23 x country champion and is included on that team and while it’s his first major Irish call-up the experience will no doubt encourage him for an international career in the years ahead.Crosss country is his forte so no fear for him. An added local interest is that LAC coach Teresa Mc Daid is squad team manager and Finn Valley’s Neil Martin from Glenfin is on coaching support staff . Best wishes go with those involved.ATHLETICS: CHRIS AND SARAH PICKED TO JOIN IRISH TEAM AT EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS was last modified: December 2nd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ATHLETICS: CHRIS AND SARAH PICKED TO JOIN IRISH TEAM AT EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPSlast_img
