European Indoors. Cillin Greene of GCH competed in the 400m on the Irish team at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow last weekend. Greene was the first Irish athlete in action, but he was most unlucky as he failed to finish his 400m heat after a mid-race collision. The championships were a great experience for the talented Greene, who will no doubt focus next on his outdoor season and look to further lower his personal bests.
