Four Mullingar athletes selected for European u/20 T&F
On Sunday evening 4th July, Athletics Ireland announced the team selected for the European u/20 T&F Championships to take place in Tallinn, Estonia in two weeks time, and among the big team of thirty three are four from Mullingar Harriers, Oisin Lane and Matthew Glennon (10,000m race walk), Eoin Quinn (800m) and Charles Okafor (4x100m relay). Oisin and Matthew had achieved the standard last year and having demonstrated good form this year, guaranteed their selection, but it was thanks to terrific performances by Eoin and Charles just that Sunday afternoon at the Leinster Junior, Senior and Masters Outdoor T&F held at IT Carlow that they secured their places on the team. Four from Mullingar is a huge achievement, one of the biggest from a single Club on the team, and a record number from Mullingar to compete at a European T&F Championships.
