Fantastic Gregan grabs a medal

Jul 16, 2011 [] With a new Personal Best time of 46.12 seconds, and new Clonliffe Club Record, Brian Gregan won the silver medal at the European Under 23 Championships this afternoon in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Interviewed straight after the race Brian had the following to say: “Two years ago I had a bad injury, I´ve gone through hell to get back here. The track was great. It was a bit windy, but I trained in windy conditions, so this was my strenght. This medal means everything to me, my family, coach, girlfriend.”

Brian was just .02 of a second outside of the Gold medal, won by Britain’s Nigel Levine. Always running at the front of the race Brian came in to the homestraight in line with the British athletes. Though it looked like he was fading, another kick with 50m to go brought him back level with Levine and within sight of the gold medal. Levine edged ahead and just held on at the tape for the gold.

This fantastic run gives Clonliffe Harriers it’s first ever medal winner from these European U23 Championships so congratulations to both Brian and his coach John Shields.

The race result was as follows:

1 LEVINE, Nigel GBR 46.10

2 GREGAN, Brian IRL 46.12 PB

3 LENNON-FORD, Luke GBR 46.22

4 KRASNOV, Vladimir RUS 46.29 SB

5 ANNE, Mame-Ibra FRA 46.32 PB

6 FÓRMANSKI, Mateusz POL 46.33

7 HUTSOL, Yevhen UKR 46.56 PB

8 BUTRYM, Vitaliy UKR 46.96

Gregan into Euro final

Jul 14, 2011 [] Brian Gregan has just qualified for the Euro Under 23 Final.

Finishing 2nd in his Semi with a time of 46.32 ( a Season’s best ) he was clearly delighted. Coming in the homestraight in 4th place, Brian looked to have a lot of work to do, which he did, leaving it it late, only moving in to 2nd place and the last of the automatic qualification places two metres from the line. The Final is on Saturday evening at 15.40 GMT and can be viewed on the following link: http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesuite.net/eaa/site/index.html

Jordan McNamara wins 125th celebration Morton Mile

Jul 9, 2011 [Noel Guiden ] The Clonliffe 125 Track and Field Grand Prix served up a thrilling nights athletics in the Morton Stadium last night. The highlight of the Meet was the Morton Mile won by crowd favourite Jordan McNamara (USA) in 3:56.83, McNamara leading seven athletes under the magical sub four minutes including the newest and youngest members of the Irish sub four minute mile club Ciaran O`Lionaird (Leevale) in 3:57.99 and Paul Robinson becoming the youngest Irishman to run sub four minutes in a time of 3:59.99.

The night was perfect for athletics. A nice warm summer evening, not a drop of rain and wind free. A night that would suit all the athletes from sprinters to milers to field eventers. It was also very pleasing to see a sizeable crowd in the Morton Stadium numbering in excess of 1000 athletics fans.

It was an athletics event that had something for everyone with the involvement in the Meet of a pre programme of races for juvenile athletes and also the elite athletes from Paralympics Ireland. The evening got underway with the unveiling by 1956 Olympic 1500 metre gold medallist Ronnie Delany of an audio plinth which commemorated the historic events of Santry from August 1958, the plinth being unveiled by Mr. Barry O Brien of the National Sports Campus Development Authority, Ronnie Delany and Billy Mortons daughter Yvonne.

On track the sprinters got the Meet underway and with the first race of the evening the womens 100 metres it was clear we were in for a special night�s athletics with all ten lanes being filled by arguably the best field of female sprinters gathered for an event such as this and in an absolute thriller Amy Foster prevailed winning the race and in the process setting a new stadium record and equalling the Northern Ireland record of 11.49. Foster�s run was 100th of a second faster than the stadium record of Donita Benjamin set on the 29th of July 2000. In 2nd place was Kelly Proper of Ferrybank AC 11.60 and 3rd in 11.86 Joan Healy of Bandon AC. Seven of the ten ladies set personal best times in this race!

Next up was the Brew Crew Mens 100, again all ten lanes of the track were filled. There was a great battle in this race which was won in considerable style by City of Derry AC�s Jason Smyth who got the crowd on their feet as he powered to a win in a very fast 10.39, in 2nd place was our Jamaican guest Kemar Bailey-Cole 10.45 and in 3rd place from Ferrybank AC Chris Russell 10.63. Jason Smyth had a notable double as later in the Meet he also won the 200 metres in another fast time, 20.94, Smyth`s first sub 21 200, in a very tight finish with Rolando Palacios of Honduras who ran 20.97. Chris Russell was again 3rd 21.11.

The Clonliffe Junior Mens Mile was won in considerable style by Raheny Shamrock Timmy Moriarty. This was a very good race which in the initial stages was led out by Liam Brady of Tullamore Harriers with Moriarty and Clonliffe�s Ian Guiden for company, these three pulled away from the chasing pack with Moriarty taking up the running at about 600 to go and winning in fine style in 4:23.76 from Brady 4:24.41 and Guiden 4:27.86 (a PB).

The IMC races provided great excitement with very close races in the 800s and very fast times to boot.

The A race was won by young Mark English (Letterkenny AC) in a fast 1:48.96 just holding off U/23 Euro-bound Anthony Lieghio (1:49.20) with Brian Kelly 3rd, another man to go sub 1:50 � 1:49.53.

In the IMC 800 B race Karl Griffin of Tir Chonill was the class of the field and got one of the biggest cheers of the night as he glided to an unbelievable time for a 16 year old of 1:50.94 from Gareth Hill (Ballymena & Antrim) 1:53.57 and Fintan Reilly (Dunleer AC) 1:54.28.

In the IMC Womens 800 pre-race favourite Ciara Mageean justified the favourite tag as she recorded a fine win in another fast time 2:03.21 from Laura Crowe (Riocht AC) 2:05.41 and DSD up and coming star Siofra Cleirigh-Buttner 2:06.57.

Fast times were also the order of the day in the IMC 1500 metres with Daire Bermingham of Raheny Shamrocks taking a fine win in a time of 3:50.46 from Alberto Sanchez (Sligo AC) 3:51.46 and Michael McKillop (St. Malachys) 3:52.53. The IMC Womens 1500 was won by Deirdre Doyle (Tinryland AC) 4:34.06 from Clonliffe girl Eleanor Alexander 4:35.94.

At 8.20 p.m. the Morton Milers were led on to the track and commentator Liam Moggan introduced them to a man to the crowd. Five minutes later the starters gun went and the 2011 Morton Mile was underway led out by pacemaker Feilim Kelly who did a fantastic job getting the athletes bang on target at halfway. Ciaran OLionaird was always in at the head of things as he had that sub four firmly in his sights. At the bell it was anyones race, however, at the final bend the very classy looking Jordan McNamara took off and crossed the line arms aloft as the crowd who had really got behind the athletes in the race, rose to acknowledge a worthy Morton Mile champion. McNamaras time was 3:56.83, a PB, as he was followed home by countryman Brandon Bethke 3:57.34 and first Irishman and first time under sub-four Ciaran O�Lionaird 3:57.99, 4th from Australian James Kaan 3:58.19, 5th Craig Miller (USA) 3:58.41, 6th Jack Bolas, last year�s runner up, 3:58.75 and 7th and also sub-four, and for the first time and becoming Irelands youngest sub-four minute miler Paul Robinson (St. Cocas AC). There were also excellent runs which were four minutes dead from Sean Connolly (Tallaght AC) 4:00.14 and John Coghlan (MSB) 4:00.79. Clonliffes Conor Healy also made a massive breakthrough taking chunks off his PB to run 4:03.35.

A clearly delighted Jordan McNamara received the Billy Morton Memorial Cup from Yvonne and Billie Morton. Also in the presentation party were Olympic gold medallist Ronnie Delany, Clonliffe Harriers President Paddy Marley and on behalf of the sponsors Noel Daly and Noel Guiden.

The action, however, was still not finished as there was an excellent mens 3000 metres race which followed. The 20 plus athletes in this race set off at considerable pace as they chased the 8 minute barrier. In the early stages DSDs Joe Sweeney took things in his own hands as he hit the front and wound up the pace, however, with a couple of laps to go he slipped back into the pack as the Irish U/23 European Cross Country winning team took over proceedings, Michael Mulhare (North Laois) wound the pace up from the front closely followed by Brendan O Neill of DSD. These two opened a gap on the pack, with a lap to go Mulhare had a considerable lead over O Neill with Rooney in 3rd place, however, the Raheny Shamrock man gritted his teeth and made up acres of ground on the last lap overhauling O Neill and then chasing Mulhare all the way down the final straight. At one stage it looked like Rooney would prevail, however, Mulhare held on to win in the end by a margin of half a second. An excellent win in a time of 8:02.08, Rooney 2nd 8:02.59 with Brendan O Neill 3rd 8:03.63. There was a very good run also in this race from Clonliffes Eoin Pearse recording a PB of 8:28.53.

The Pole Vaulters also provided great entertainment on the night particularly our US visitors as Jeff Coover of Team Indiana Elite vaulted one of the highest jumps seen in the Morton Stadium in a long time with a best of 5.30m and then came very close at 5.45m. His countryman Greg Woespse was 2nd with 4.90 with Crusaders Ruairi O�Briain best of the Irish with a seasons best of 4.70.

The discus competition was won by Clonliffes Tomas Racktys with a best of 46.47 from Jeremy Harpur of North Down and David Sweeney of Sli Cualann 3rd.

Ferrybank ACs Kelly Proper was the class of the field in the womens long jump as she recorded a sequence of six jumps all well over 6 meters winning the competition with a best of 6.18. In 2nd place was Chealsea Taylor (USA) 5.85 with Leona Byrne 3rd 5.70.

The performances of some of Paralympics Ireland athletes should also be commented upon as during the course of their events there were two Irish records set, both by Ray O`Dwyer. Firstly in the seated Javelin where he threw an Irish record of 21.20 and then in the seated shot where he recorded a best of 9.27m for his second Irish record of the night.

In all it was a great night in the Morton Stadium. The crowd in attendance enjoyed the event as the athletes clearly responded and equally enjoyed the nights proceedings. Post event there was a great gathering in the Clonliffe bar of Clonliffe people past and present, sponsors, supporters and athletes with food, drink, music and crack.

Sprinters win juvenile titles

Jul 9, 2011 [Noel Guiden] On day 1 of the National Juvenile Championships in Tullamore today there was double gold from sprinters Patrick O`Connor winning the U/19 100m in 11.38 and Keith Pike taking the U/18 title in 11.32. Stuart Roche also ran very well placing 5th in the U/19 100 (11.8). Megan Coomber made the U/16 final placing 8th in 13.54. Andrew Heeney was 2nd on count back in the U/17 high jump at 1.90m. Elaine Begley was 4th in the U/18 100H in 16.44, Sarah Quinn placed 5th in the U/16 high jump with 1.50m and Eoin McCullogh was 7th in the U/18 2,000 sc in a time of 11.03.15.

Grand prix and club 5,000m

Jul 4, 2011 [Grand Prix Committee] The Grand Prix Series returned to the track last Thursday 30th June. This joint club Championship and Grand Prix 5000m race took place on a pleasently warm and sunny night and was very well attended with 37 finishers.

 

However, before we give details of results, times and Grand Prix points scored, we wish to comment on the very poorly attended presentation of prizes after the race. Given that 37 finished the race it is regrettable that only a handful managed to stay for the presentation of club championship and Grand Prix prizes. This was most disapppointing for everyone and shows little respect for sponsors and those providing the post race tea and biscuits. We rely on the goodwill of the sponsors of each individual race for prizes and it is discouraging when only a small number of athletes remain behind for presentations, so please make the effort for the next race.

Patrick O`Connor woke up this morning to find himself elevated to the 100m A race, and gave a good account of himself. Patrick was 6th in the 100m A (11.21) and 1st in the 200m B (22.72). In the 400h John Fagan was 4th (52.77) while Ian Rogers was joint 3rd in the pole vault with a best of 4.40m.
