Olive (old pic)

In the week that Loughrea AC hosts its 5k leg of the Galway Series, there was more good news as club member Olive Loughnane finished 4th in the European race walking championships, just 25 seconds off a bronze medal.  The standard in this championships was up there with the olympics and world champs and cements Olive's reputation as one of the very top race walkers in the world.
