Sara McCormack set a new club 5,000m record at Saturday`s BMC meet in Coventry of 15.45.61, bettering her existing club record by three seconds. Although Saturday`s race was a mixed race IAAF rules recognise performances in mixed events from 5,000m upwards. At the same meet Eoin Pierce finished 2nd in the A 1500 in 3.54.02, Eoin had ran 3.54 the previous week.
Speaking of the previous week in the disappointment of the league final the excellent performance of Denise Byrne in the women`s javelin was over looked. In placing 2nd Denise threw a new club record of 41.89 beating her existing club record.
