The Rain in Spain falls mainly in your face!

As Dublin basked in Mediterranean sunshine on Wednesday Clonliffe athletes ran head on into a storm at the Iberoamericano de Atletismo in Huelva, Spain. Running into a strong hailstone laden wind Brian Gregan placed 6th in a time of 47.30, it was, however, a fine battling performance, the race itself was won by Nkobolono (Botswana) in 46.28, the general consensus being that all times were down by at least a second to a second and a half. Ciara McCallion recorded a sub 56 second time, her seasons best, despite the conditions finishing 5th in the B final in a time of 55.99.
