IUAA Indoor Championships
Illness and injury meant that only 14 QUB athletes boarded the fun bus and travelled down to Nenagh for the recent Irish Universities Indoor Athletics Championships.
QUB old boy Paul Lynas showed that the increased volume of training he has been putting in recently paid off as he managed to hold off the poly’s Sean McMahon and take silver in the 60m hurdles. Carrying a slight injury in his right hamstring, Paul was able to prevail despite pulling his left hamstring as he hurdled the final barrier.
Fresher James Surgenor showed great pace judgement in the Men’s 800m to take bronze. James surged just at the correct time to pass fellow QUB athlete Paddy Cassidy on the final straight and record a time of 2:03– Paddy held on to 4th place in 2:05.
