Congratulations to Jamie Fallon who finished in 62nd place in a time of 55.02 at the World Mountain Running Championships which were held in Tuscany, Italy today over 8.4km of mountain terrain. Most of the competitors were 1 or 2 years older than Jamie so it was a massive performance to be competing out of age at this level. Well done Jamie!
Jamie is pictured below with other Irish athletes in the pictuesque (and challenging!) mountains of Tuscany (pictures nicked from Jamie”s facebook!). Gives me some ideas for the next phase of the athletics development in Craughwell … a ski slope!
