SIAB Schools International XC 2023 (25th Mar)



Medal Winning International Debut for Tianna

Every athlete dreams of running for Ireland and on Saturday 25th March that dream came true for Tianna O’Leary when she made her International debut at the SIAB Schools International Cross Country in Liverpool as a member of the Irish Junior team, and she made it an even more memorable day by winning team silver, which was a great reward for all her hard work and dedication in training. Held in a cool and windy Sefton Park, the best Irish schools athletes were up against the best from England, Scotland and Wales running on a lovely undulating open parkland course with good underfoot conditions.

Tianna settled in to her running very quickly in the pack in the Junior girls 3,000m race. Continuing to work hard throughout, and with a great final effort she pushed all the way up the home straight to cross the finish line still full of running, an excellent fifth score for Ireland and playing her part in team success as the Irish team finished in second place, to win the silver team medals, a great result for Tianna on her International debut.

Now that Tianna has made her International debut for Ireland, her name will be added to the International Roll of Honour in the Clubhouse, the one hundred and twenty third name on the marble wall plaque.
