Liam O’Brien (East Cork), making his seasonal debut in the 3,000m steeplechase, booked his ticket to the A.A.A. championships, with a solo 8.48.8 run. Tommy Moloney (Thurles Crokes), guesting, fought out an exciting finish to the 800m with Ray Shanahan (Leevale) and Mallow international Terrie Horgan had a treble, in the sprints and high jump, at the Adidas Cork B.L.E. track and field championships, at The Mardyke yesterday afternoon.

O’Brien, with his sights on a qualifying time for the European championships, in Stuttgart, in August, took a step towards realising his ambition, with an impressive steeplechase run. Part of his plan is a return to Crystal Palace, where he qualified for the Olympics in 1984, and he gets an expenses paid trip, by beating the qualifying mark of 8.50 laid down by B.L.E. for the A.A.A. championships there.

The 800 metres title goes to Ray Shanahan, but yesterday’s race went to Tommy Moloney from Thurles who was running as a guest, in what proved to be the highlight of the track programme. Moloney took up the running, from young Geoffrey Sheehan (North Cork), after just 100 metres, but, once he hit the front, he always had Shanahan on his shoulder. They went through 400 in just under 58 seconds, but picked up the tempo over the final 300 metres when Shanahan launched his first
major challenge. At 200 metres it looked as if he might hit the front, but Moloney, with his sights on a place on the team for the two internationals, in Spain, early next month, fought him off, and held on down the finishing straight to win impressively.

Kieran Mills (Mallow) had a treble in the high and long jumps, and the javelin, clearing 1.95 to win the high, while Derek Neff (Leevale) again cleared 3.90 in the pole vault and this could get him to the youths A.A.A. championships.

Terrie Horgan (Mallow), a new inter-national last year, recorded her treble in the sprints and high jump and she had to give way to Kathleen Glavin (Midleton) in the long jump who got her season under way with an impressive 5.98.

The Lenihan sisters, Helen, Noreen and Kathy took the three medals for Eagle T.C., Noreen in the shot putt event, Helen completing a double in the javelin and Kathy winning the discus.
