76th place for Breege Connolly

14 August 2016

Breege Connolly was equally delighted with her performance and was vastly ahead of her ranking in going into the race which had 158 competitors.

“It’s been the best running week of my life,” said Connolly afterwards who was pleased her hard work building up to the event paid off. “It was tough and I went to Monte Gordo (in Portugal) warm weather training. Nothing can prepare you properly for racing in the heat but I’m delighted with my run. It’s a relief after all the hard work.”
