AAI Indoor Games 2020 (9th Feb)
Coming on the back of medal success at the AAI u/23 Indoors, Claire Fagan competed in the 1,500m at the AAI Indoor Games on Sunday afternoon 9th February at the National Indoor Arena in Abbotstown, Co. Dublin. There was a large field of 17 runners and the fast early pace suited Claire and she quickly settled into a place in the main group. There was no let up in the pace but the main group still remained big throughout and with three laps to go there was some contact between athletes as they vied for position, always a risk when running indoors in large groups. Slightly impeded, Claire lost some ground but recovered well to finish very strongly in the closing laps to finish in 4:32.67, a strong performance and one to build on in her next indoor race.
