Annmarie Power…Ironman Triathlon in 10h 22m

Ironman Austria: Many of our members take part in various triathlons all over the country and abroad, and obviously including results here is not feasible. However, special mention must go to Annemarie Power on her amazing achievement last weekend. Undertaking her 2nd Ironman competition, Annemarie completed the event in 10hr 22 mins, a huge improvement on her time there last year. After swimming approximately 2 miles and cycling 180km, Annemarie ran a fantastic marathon time of 3:37.

Track & Field News… by Keith Burke
We had several participants at Round 3 of the Cork Graded League on Monday 20th June and some very good performances. In the 3,000m, John O’Callaghan finished 10th clocking a new personal best of 10:05.37 in the process (one of many P.B.s in recent weeks for John!). Kevin Geary finished 18th in a time of 10:42.07.
In the 200m, new member John O’Connor finished second in his heat in a time of 28.19.
Unfortunately our 4x400m relay team did not have a challenger for their race other than the clock but the team nonetheless came very close to breaking 4 minutes in a time of 4:02.5. Putting the time in context, 4:02.5 was ranked as the 10th best performance overall among all events and participants at Round 3 of the League. The team ran in the order of Keith Burke, Chris Bristow, David O’Donovan and Damian Kenneally.

20june2016a

Eagle AC sat in 8th place in the League Table after Round 2 but our performances in Round 3 should see the club climb a few places. We had seven members competing at the latest Round which is our highest number at an individual Round this year or last year; let’s keep the numbers up and boost our League position!

Looking ahead, Round 4 of the Cork Graded League is on 12th July and the Munster Masters Track & Field Championships are to be held at Waterford RSC on Sunday 31st July. Further details on the Munster Championships are available on the Munster Athletics website.

Niamh McCarthy wins Silver at the European IPC Championships in Italy

Niamh600pix

Congratulations to club member Niamh McCarthy who today won a Silver medal at the European Paralympic Championships in Italy. Competing in the F40/F41 discus category, Niamh threw a distance of 27.05 metres. Not only was this a new personal best distance for her but  it was also a new European record in the F41 category. Niamh finished behind a Polish athlete who was in the F40 category and finished ahead on points.

Niamh is of course no stranger to international success having won Bronze at the World Championships in Doha last year. The current European Championships are part of her build up for the Paralymic Games in Rio later in the Summer.

From Paralympics Ireland…..An extremely focused performance from Cork athlete McCarthy saw her set a new F41 European Record and Personal Best early on with a distance of 25.45m, before going on to break this record on her third throw with a distance of 27.05m.

In what was a mixed class event (F40 and F41) McCarthy was pipped to the gold medal by F40 Polish athlete Renata Sliwinska who won the event on points.

“That was absolutely stunning,” said an almost speechless National Throws Coach, Dave Sweeney. “A truly stunning performance from Niamh. She smashed her PB to smithereens, and it really was unfortunate that she lost out on gold by points in the mixed class event.

“She is thrilled now to have thrown so well, and remained focused throughout. It was an absolutely incredible performance and moves her well up the world rankings. We’ve had a fantastic few days now with everyone throwing extremely well. They all did really well in Doha at the World Championships and have all moved up a level again from that, it’s been amazing to watch.”
