Happy Christmas folks and a great New Year from everyone at Sportsworld!
We’d an outstanding year of success….don’t believe me? Then check out the 2009 section of our club titles!
We won Gold medals, silver medals, bronze medals, chocolate medals. We’d athletes selected for international duty including Helen White at the European Mountain Running Championships in the hills of Austria, Ed McEntee at the World Masters in the snow of Norway, then Aoife Brady with the National Senior Cross Country Team in the sand at Belgium and Lucy, Helen & Carol at the Masters CC at Spaghetti Junction. We’d trips to Ballyvaughan, Ballycotton, Roddy Bolands, Kilmore Quay, Lanzarote and Waterford not to mention marathoners running from Chicago to Berlin. We had another classic 5 mile, thats 25 I believe now, a quarter of a century of Sportsworlds world record (Ismael Kirui in ’93) road race and we even won the Dunshaughlin 10km super cup (see facebook for those pics!).We’d also highly successful track runners, road runners, cross country runners, mountain runners, mini-marathoners and our all conquering meet and train runners. We’d generous fund raising and cake sale nights. But most importantly we saw Joe Byrne’s endangered retro horizontal striped Sportsworld singlet somehow survive another safety-pin-holed year.
Long may it continue! Enjoy!
