Brian Gregan got the Irish 4 x 400 team off to a great start in the Bird`s nest Stadium in Beijing this morning passing onto Brian Murphy (Crusaders), in turn to ace hurdler Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) and Mark English (UCD) the team finished 7th in their semi (13th overall) and set a National Record of 3.01.26. Post race the Clonliffe man said: “I had to run my own race out there, and not panic when the guy (Jamaican) came beside me. The first leg is always difficult to measure.” It was a classy performance by the team, mention also of squad man Timmy Crowe, congratulations to all concerned.
