A win for Emma at Belfast Milers Meet

The Belfast milers club meet at the Mary Peters track today brought mixed outcomes for the Clonliffe athletes taking part. Marcus Lawler as part of his season’s preparations did a 200 and 400 double up finishing 2nd in both, 21.09 in the 200, 47.53 in the 400. Emma Mitchell had a good day and was the class of the field in the 5000 kicking for home with 300 to go winning in 16.38.48. Ian Guiden had a tough day at the office finishing 9th in the 5000 in 14.34.54. Darren O’Dwyer ran a 2 second PB in his 800 and by the narrowest of margins missed his first sub- 2, but clearly it’s only a matter of time, as he ran 2.00.03 placing 2nd after a fine race. Yet another PB for the collection for Niall Carbery this time in the 1500, Niall running, 3.58.55. Mark McDonald ran 4.06.08 in his 1500. Unfortunately Jonny Whan suffered a severe hamstring spasm 200 from home in the A 1500 forcing him to abandon ship. Greta Streimikyte was 6th in the B1500 in 4.31 82.
