Le Cheile AC Senior Summer Meeting 2020 (7th Aug)


The Le Cheile AC Senior Summer Meeting took place in warm dry but quite windy conditions in Leixlip on Friday evening 7th August where the 5,000m clear pre-race favourite, Claire Fagan stamped her authority on the race after a few kilometres, turning the screw and increasing her lead with every step and going on to win in a very good 16:59.39, lapping everyone else in the field, except one, and finishing nearly a full lap ahead of second place demonstrating her class and will be one to watch in the National Senior T&F. Colin Smith (the older one), learning from the Dublin Graded just days before, put in a more measured performance in the 800m. He was nicely positioned at the bell and stayed in contention for most of the race, and even though he came home in 1:57.07, allowing for the windy conditions, this was a better race for him and he continues to hone and improve his racing tactics with every outing.
