NI athletes competed among the best at the recent Loughborough International on Sunday (21st May). The competitor list was made up of high-level athletes from all over the UK and Ireland, including World Championship and Commonwealth Games Heptathlon Champion, Katharina Johnson-Thompson.
NI Commonwealth Games athlete, Hannah Irwin (Cambridge & Coleridge AC) and U23 GB & NI team medallist at the 2022 European Cross Country Championships, Grace Carson (Mid Ulster AC) were competing in the 3000m. Both NI athletes worked together with Hannah narrowly beating Grace to the line. Hannah ran 9:19.69 (PB) in 6th place with Grace running 9:20.55 (PB) in 7th place.
In the Women’s Pole Vault, NI Commonwealth Games athlete, Ellie McCartney, jumped 4.00m placing her 5th. Fantastic performance from the City of Lisburn athlete in her second outdoor competition of the season.
Amazing results from our talented athletes, keep up the great work.
