Marcus withdraws from Europeans

Unfortunately Clonliffe ace sprinter Marcus Lawler has had to make the heartbreaking decision to withdraw from the Irish 4 x 100 team for next month’s European Track and Field Championships. Marcus picked up an injury competing on the Irish 4 x 100 team at the Dromia International Meet in Greece on May 15th and although he has made considerable progress on his recovery the Europeans are coming a “little too early” for him to be back to full fitness. Rather than risk exacerbating the injury and indeed hurting the team’s prospects Marcus informed Athletics Ireland of his decision to withdraw and now focus on recovery and regaining race fitness. All in the club wish him a speedy recovery.
