There was a very poor turnout from Sportsworld at the second last graded met of the summer at Santry. I debated going myself and even turned the car off the motorway at Ballymount when I was submerged in all the traffic on the M50 knowing that I would not make the 200m race. I shortly came to my senses realizing I had nothing to lose by giving the 800m ago if I did not make the 200m race, (which unfortunately started as I arrived).
Race report Margaret in 800m action Wednesday
The first Sportsworld member on the track was David taking part in the 200m. David came second in his met.
Next up was Margaret (myself) who competed in her first 800m race. I will definitely try this distance again but as a sprinter I was far too hesitant to go out fast, but lesson learned, go out a bit harder next time.
David was back for more action and signed up for the Grade C 800m race along with Will. Will ran a great race, sat in comfortably for the first 600m and then sprinted it all the way home for the last 200m (this man has definitely recovered from his trip to France for the Euros). David also ran a strong 800m race and found his 6th gear for the last 200m.
Note: The Morton Games are on at the same track tonight, Friday 22nd. This is a top international meet which kicks off at 7pm, there is always a good crew from the club there so head along.
