Incredible news again from Loughrea's Olive Loughnane who sensationally broke away from the Chinese athlete to take a remarkable Silver in Berlin with a season's best performance of 1:28:58. Olive was Ireland's best performer in Beijing and this is a super high point of her career.
She is a class act. Congratulations to her, to her family (including her Craughwell AC sister Anne) and also to Loughrea AC from all in Craughwell. I know TJ and co are out in Berlin and must be over the moon. We are thrilled for you!
