Yuri Sedykh Dies Aged 67 - September 14th 2021

Russian Hammer Thrower Yuri Sedykh Who Broke World record at 1984 Cork City Sports Dies

Tuesday September 14th 2021

Russian Olympic and World Champion Hammer thrower Yuri Sedykh was died aged 67.  Russian newsagency TASS reported earlier today that he had suffered a heart attack

In an enthralling hammer competition at the 1984 Cork City Sports, Sedykh, along with his compatriot Sergey Litvinov, set the meet alight, throwing no less than 6 World Records between them in less than an hour

On a balmy summer’s evening on July 3rd 1984, at the Mardyke Arena, in the space of an incredible hour, the world record in the hammer was shattered six times by a pair of Soviet athletes.


Yuri returned, as a guest, to the 2015 Cork City Sports, and the following is the Cork Athletics report:
The Cork City Sports meet, began inauspiciously enough. Shortly before six o’clock, Sergei Litvinov, world record holder and reigning world champion, stepped into the circle and fouled off his opening throw. A few minutes later, his compatriot Yuri Sedykh, gold medallist at the 1976 and 1980 Olympics, picked up his hammer and launched his first effort 86.34 meters. The 29 year old had gone 2.20m past the mark of 84.14 established by Litvinov 13 months previously, and set the craziness in motion.

Since 1980, the Soviet pair had dominated the event and swapped ownership of the world record four times in that spell. Taking full advantage of the perfect throwing conditions on a glorious summer’s evening, Litvinov’s second throw of 85.14m was a remarkable response to his comrade. A personal best, it would have been a new world record itself half an hour earlier.

However, this was to be Sedykh’s night. His second attempt was another massive throw, measured at 85.98m. His third throw went through the 85m mark and even his last legal throw was 84.16. In reply, the best of Litvinov’s remaining throws was 84.64m. He’d twice thrown better than the world record, yet his comrade had gone better than the old world record with four of this throws.

For this performance, Sedykh was judged to be the athlete of the meet, an accolade for which he was awarded the US Ambassador’s Cup.
Sedykh stated afterwards. “I think there is no limit to man’s ability. It’s good to be back in the land where the hammer event was started. The warmth of the spectators is something I will always remember from my visit to Cork.”

Sedykh and Litvinov ran a joint lap of honour on the track and received a tumultuous  reception from the capacity crowd.
“We were delighted,” said Owen O’Callaghan whose company, O’Callaghan Properties, had sponsored the hammer event. “ we brought Sedykh out on the town that night to experience some Cork hospitality.”


When reporters asked Sedykh whether his record was likely to be broken at the Olympics, he answered with an emphatic ‘No’. He was correct on that score. It stood for almost two years until he broke it again by going 86.66m at an international athletics meeting in Tallinn, Estonia. A silver medallist in Seoul in 1988, he moved to Paris following the break-up of the Soviet Union. Still the owner of the world record, he now travels the world giving throwing clinics

Unlike many hammer throwers Sedykh threw off three rotations rather than four. He felt three rotations were sufficient. With this technique he won gold medals at the 1976 Summer Olympics and 1980 Summer Olympics as well as taking first at the 1986 Goodwill Games and the 1991 World Championships in Athletics.

Tony O’Connell, chairman of Cork City Sports states that “Everyone has fond memories of the night 32 years ago that the world hammer record was broken six times at Cork City Sports. It is great to have Yuriy Sedykh back in Cork so that we can once again honour the man and recollect that famous night once more.”

Athletics Ireland Report

McCarthy fifth in discus final

Niamh McCarthy finished fifth in the F41 discus final after throwing 28.94 metres in her final round.

The Cork woman, who took silver in the event at Rio, had been in the medal positions early on in the final but on a day of exceptional performances she couldn't quite find the edge.

Defending champion Roaua Tlili, of Tunisia, set a new world record of 37.91m to take gold ahead of Morocco's Youssra Karim (37:35m) whose teammate Hayat El Garaa took bronze with 29:30.

"I’m happy with my performance," McCarthy said afterwards.

"I know other people were expecting better things but it’s been a very hard few years so just to make it here and to have a few good throws I’m happy with that.

"My PB is over 30m and I’m a way’s off my season best. If you just look at the result you’d be thinking if I did slightly nearer to it I could have got a medal but I don’t think I could have done more today, I did as best as I could.

"Had the Games gone ahead last year I wouldn’t have been in them. I’ve been trying for years to get back to where I used to be so it’s been a difficult time. I’ve changed as a person. That’s not to say that those strengths aren’t in there but they’re not with me right now in the quantity that I’d like so I’m happy to just have made it to this competition.

"It was touch-and-go so I’m really proud of myself."

 

Tuesday Aug 31st

Orla Comerford was the sole member of Team Ireland to compete at the Olympic Stadium yesterday as she competed in the 3rd heat of the T13 100m. Orla faced a very strong field and new that to qualify she would need to break her personal best. She crossed the link in 4th position with a time of 12.87 which meant that she did not progress to the finals this evening. However, speaking after the race she revealed the difficulties that she has head whilst preparing for today’s event;

“Today the goal unfortunately wasn’t time and progressing through, it was when I got on the plane to Tokyo, and it was, in our opinion, a very realistic and achievable goal to be making that final and being competitive in it. You know, the expectation for this games have shifted an number of times this year with injury and we’ve had to adapt to those changes and unfortunately one of them came on the last day of training camp in Narita where I sustained a small tear in my quad so for me the last couple of weeks have been all about being in a position where I could go out and line up on the track, I knew there was no way that I could be realistically competitive and pushing for the times I would have expected from myself a month ago so, unfortunately, that was the reality today so the goal after that happened was to line up, to be there, to race, to cross the finish line and to be honest I wasn’t even sure that would happen.”

“Lining up was incredibly important for me with losing my coach, Brian Corcoran, two weeks ago. I saw him the day I left and I know that he was incredibly proud of me being here and being on the plane so for me it was about lining up and being there and I think he was with me every step of the way. To his family who have been so incredibly strong and so incredibly kind, I’m sure this has been an incredibly difficult time for them, it’s been a very difficult time for all of us, it was really hard being here by myself, I was lonely not being at home with the Raheny Shamrocks gang and his family and everything like that but I know that, at the end of the day, this is where he wanted me to be, he told me as much and so mu goal was to be out there and, while I knew I couldn’t make him proud with the times and the performance I hoped that he would be proud of my resilience and my drive to be out there on the starting line.”

63 Min Half-Marathon for Ryan Creech - August 2021

Ryan Creech Runs 63:26 for 6th Place in Antrim Coast Half-Marathon

Larne, Antrim

Sunday August 29th 2021

 

ryan creech 2019 12 11 spo 55562236 I1

Ryan Creech, Leevale AC ran a fabulous 63:26 in yesterday's Antrim Coast Half-Marathon, in Larne, Co. Antrim, coming 6th overall in the presitigious World Athletics Gold Label Elite Race. Subject to confirmation, this makes Ryan the second fastest Cork Half-Marathoner to date, behind Mark Carroll, with 63:11, in New York in October 2002, though Mark also has a 62:36, from the Great North Run, in September 2005, but that course doesn't count for World Bests, as it was a point-to-point race, and with an overall fall exceeding permissable limits.

On Saturday, Ryan posted this on his social media account: "It's been 6 years, 5 soul sucking heart breaking surgeries later, and finally have the green back. I wouldn't of got back here if it wasn't for the constant emotional & financial support of Chloé, family, friends and the wizard Donie. Let's hope the legs wake up for tomorrow"  Yes...your legs woke up in a big way Ryan.

 

Ryan's splits look to be pretty consistent, around 15 mins per 5km
