Irish Universities Indoor Track and Field

After the disappointment of missing last week’s British Universities cross country in Exeter due to weather induced cancelled flights, Craig McMeechan adopted the more familiar mode of minibus to Athlone for this weekend’s Irish Indoor track and field championships.  


After spending most of the competition day watching fellow athletes participate Craig focused on his 5pm 1500m race before jumping on the minibus for the return journey.  The pace around the seven and a half laps of the track was sharp as the lead chopped and changed with Craig sitting 5th going into the last 200m lap.  The Queens Uni athlete ran himself into a bronze medal with a 27 second lap finishing just half a second behind the winner and an indoor pb of 3:59:87.
