Results Links/ Brief Round up
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.
Congratulations go to Cillin Greene on his selection to the Irish team for the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow in March. This follows his superb win and qualifying time achieved in the 400m at the National Indoor Championships in Dublin on Sunday. The European Championships take place from March 1st to 3rd, and Greene’s first race will be the 400m heats on Friday morning March 1st.
