AAI Summer Games 2021 (25th July)
It was another hot and sunny day in IT Carlow on Sunday 25th July for the AAI Summer Games. Disappointed not to have qualified for the All-Ireland Juvenile T&F finals in August, Lorcan Mullen and Ross Killalea competed in the 1,500m aiming to end the track season on a good note. Running in the second race, they both competed with intent from the gun, keeping in close contact with the leasers and finished strongly, Lorcan in fourth in a new PB of 4:07.69, with Ross close behind in sixth in 4:09.84, also a new PB, to round off their seasons in style.
By the time the 5,000m started, temperatures were very high and not at all conducive to distance running, but Ian McCormack and Andrew Nevin are made of stern stuff and battled on against the heat and humidity, finishing strongly in fourth and fifth respectively, only a few seconds separating them at the finish.
