European Gold for Gerry Ryan
Fantastic news just in. Gerry ran exceptionally well over a tough course in the Czech republic to beat the best in Europe over 10k, winning his m45 category. Gerry, who turns 50 this year not only beat all the m45s, but also beat all the m40s and all but one of the m35s in the strong field to finish second overall. Incredible!
Gerry being the fierce competitor that he is almost won the whole thing, finishing only about 12 seconds behind the first m35 (a French man with a 28:47pb who just turned 35 last month), and was disappointed not to beat him too..
Just doing this update from my phone, will add more detail later.. and some pics if I find them.
