A very impressive 5th place performance for Aoife Cooke at the National Senior XC in Dublin today . A highly competitive race in which no less than 5 former Olympians were included.
Well done to Aoife, whose performance must have put her well in contention for a European XC spot. A big congrats also to fellow Cork woman, Michelle Finn who claimed victory in the race and earned herself an automatic qualifying spot.
