Valuable Role of B.L.O.E. - Marathon Magazine, June 1986 - Vol 24, No 4, P26 - 28 (PDF File)

 

EDITORIAL NOTE:

B.L.O.E. is the the juvenile wing of B.L.E. which caters for the under-11 to under-17 age groups. Having been totally involved with the organisation since 1970 I can speak very highly for what it is doing, both from the athletic point of view and the social point of view for the youth of our country. Competitions are organised at county, regional and national level in all track and field events and cross-country, plus a limited programme of indoor events.

 

DANGERS

In the past, B.L.O.E. has catered for thousands of young athletes, but a very small percentage have made it into junior and senior athletics. There are many reasons for this, but one of the major reasons must be too much competition and too intensive training at an early age. It is possible with the present set up for juvenile athletes to be competing for the 52 weeks of the year. The cross-country season can go on from September to April and then the track season begins and continues until September. Of course the argument can be raised that it should be the responsibility of the clubs, parents and coaches to limit the competition and this is fine in theory but when the competitions are available then the athletes compete in them.

CLOSE SEASONS

I have advocated for a number of years that all B.L.O.E. cross-country events should be held between October and early December. There should be a break from then until the end of January with a limited programme of indoor events from then until mid-March. During that period colleges cross-country is available for those who need it.

The B.L.O.E. track season starts very early, usually in April, with most county championships in May, regional in June and national in July. After the nationals there should be a closed season at least for all athletes at national standard until October. I believe that it is this period many of them are destroyed, going to open events week after week, collecting more and more “plastic men” to adorn an already overcrowded room of dust collectors. We could learn a lot from the horse racing fraternity. A good trainer does not send a good horse out week after racing and I have yet to see a race for a young foal. The comparison may seem a little bit naive but the conclusion could have some merit.

 

TRIBUTE

Having said what I said I must pay tribute to all those parents, coaches, teachers, etc., who work tirelessly for the common good of our young people and I would appeal to our young athletes to appreciate the opportunities given to them. Use them well and sensibly and try to find your way into junior and senior athletics — you will need sport then just as much as sport needs you.

B.L.O.E. MATTERS

By Bro. Cuthbert Nolan, P.R.O.

Young Athletes' CoachingCourse, Gormanston

1/4/’86-4/4/’86


On the evening of Tuesday, April 1st, 1986, the corridors of Gormanston College, Co. Meath, began to echo and re-echo to the sound of athletic feet and mingling voices of hopeful Olympians as the process of Registration got under way. Old friendships were renewed and new ones were begun.


A total of 130 young athletes of 15 to 17 years, representing every county in Ireland, and all the athletic disciplines, Sprints, Middle Distance, Jumps and Throws, had reported to avail of the expertise afforded by some of the most experienced of Irish Athletic Coaches.


At 7.00 p.m. Mr. John McDermott, B.L.O.E. Vice-chairman and Course coordinator, welcomed everyone and outlined the arrangements for the following days, which were filled outwith a tight schedule of activities, lectures, swimming, table tennis and athletic films. Mr. Paddy McGovern, President of B.L.E., exhorted the athletes to show their appreciation to their clubs and to their coaches who do so much for them on a totally voluntary basis, to continue in the sport as administrators, even after their competition days are over, and always to aim to develop their full potential in the sport.

The weather was ideal. On Wednesday, the various groups were taken in tow by the coaches. The jumpers were taken by bus to Santry on Thursday. The disco that night was, as usual, greatly appreciated. Group sessions were interspersed by a series of lectures, viz The American University and Athletic Scholarships’ by Philip Conway; The National and International Competitions available to Young Athletes’ by Padraic Griffin; ‘Stretching before Training and its Importance’ . . Miss O'Connor. ‘Experiences of the Irish Olympic Camp 1984 in Los Angeles’. . Lar O’Byrne.. Our thanks to them and to the following Coaching Staff: Sean Naughton (Hurdles), Tom Coyle (Sprints), Brian Corcoran (Sprints), Philip Conway (Throws), Joe Doonan (Middle Distance), Lar O’Byrne (Long Distance and Steeplechase), John Shields (L. Jump), Niall Sweeney (Triple Jump), Des Goff (High Jump), Liam Hennessy (Pole Vault), Paul Quinlan (Hammer), Michael Lane (Walks), John Mulcaire (Javelin).


The followign observer coaches were present: Margaret Cadogan, Skibbereen; Geraldine Campion, Slieveardagh; Jeremiah Looney, Blarney/lniscarra; Paddy Farrell, St. L. O’T.; Michael O’Brien, Dungarvan; D. McCloskey, Oakleaf, Derry.


Members of the National Executive of BLOE present were: Mrs. A. Peppard, Mr. T. Darcy, Mr. B. Battersby, and Bro. Cuthbert. We wish to thank the catering and management staff of Gormanston College for the many facilities afforded our athletes.


On Friday afternoon a happy band of Irish boys and girls said “Good-bye” and paid their tributes to the eventuful days. I quote from one: “This course to me is one of the best in Ireland for young people of any age. The coaches and officials are all very friendly and they will help you in whatever way they can. The price of the course is very cheap, which will mean that a lot of people can afford to come and join in the fun. It lets us meet new friends. I don’t think there is anything needed to improve the course"


Who needs to import coaches with such fine reaction to our own?


All in all, Gormanston Easter Week 1986 will rank as one of the most successful courses ever organised by B.L.O.E.

Juvenile Training Returns

This week saw a welcome return of Juvenile training for most clubs, with many clubs celebrating on their social media channels. A number of clubs opened partially, so that they could assess their own readiness and ensure that Garda Vetting and Child Safety Protocols are up to date, and to process these for new and returning volunteers.

Further opening up of the sport will, hopefully, be announced in the coming weeks, facilitated by the roll-out of the Covid vaccines at large scale centres, such as Pairc Ui Caoimh, which is operating 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week

Aoife Cooke, Eagle AC, led from the front to win the women's race at today's Cheshire Elite Marathon, in Pulford, Cheshire. More importantly, she achieved the Olympic Marathon Qualification Time of 2:29:36 by almost a full minute.  She also moves up to fourth place in the all-time Irish Marathon rankings, overhauling Sonia O'Sullivan.

With the pressure, particularly given the lack of qualification marathons in the current pandemic, of making the time, now lifted, she is free to devote the next three months leading up to the Olympic Marathon to concentrating on her performance in Tokyo.

Update 23rd April 2021

Now that restrictions are easing and competition is coming back, we want to advise our Competition Providers that the current Irish Government restrictions state that travel in Ireland is restricted to within the county, or up to 20km if crossing a county boundary.

Richard the Lion-Hearted

Richard O'Flynn

This year’s B.L.E. Inter-Counties Cross-Country Championship at Kilbarry in Waterford attracted a good deal of attention with the presence of Providence teammates Richard O’Flynn and Brendan Quinn, home on Christmas vacation, and Quinn fresh from his fine run in the American championship.

Brendan, on foot of his 7th placing in the latter and because of his excellent form of the previous 6 months when he also recaptured his Irish steeplechase record and he had in his favour home territory, entered the race as slight favourite. Richard, building back again to top form after an indifferent year, was hungry for success.

 

ble national inter counties cross country chp 1986 c1L to R; Danny McDaid, Richard O'Flynn, Brendan Quinn and Robert Costello

Flynn no doubt was anxious to impress the selectors and give himself automatic selection for the World Championships, he set about his task with grim determination and surprised the leading group after the first mile by breaking away on his own, leaving the rest to battle for the minor placings. He admitted afterwards that he changed plans just after the start of the
race, anyway he likes running in front and with the very sticky nature of the course his change was well justified. At the 3 mile mark Robert Costello and Brendan Quinn were locked in battle but the big Waterford man had more in reserve at the finish to come home 3 seconds clear of the Limerick man. O’Flynn’s winning time was 32.15 and this was 19 seconds clear of Quinn.

Cork easily retained their Inter-County crown but a predictable surprise was the 2nd place finish of Tipperary, led by John Fitzgerald and Peter Maher, with county winner Tommy Maloney failing to make the scoring six having been with the leaders for the first 2 miles. Limerick finished 3rd.


Special mention must be made of the 4th place finish of 44-year-old Danny McDaid, who came storming through on the last lap.

Breakthrough for Valerie

 

ble national inter counties cross country chp 1986 d4

Valerie O'Mahony

It is difficult to think that Valerie O’Mahoney is still only 24 years of age. As long as I have been actively involved in the sport, stretching back to 1970, Valerie has been competing.

 

ble national inter counties cross country chp 1986 d2

Top four (L to R) Greta Hickey (4th), Mary Friel (3rd), Valerie O'Mahony (1st) and Ann Keenan (2nd)


She is an inspiration to all with her dedication and her loyalty to her club, Togher, during all those years when things were not going as well as she might have liked, with difficult work hours and a recurring viral infection. But it was all worth while in Waterford as she bided her time with the calculation of a veteran, before going on, during the last lap, to fashion a meritorious victory over an equally dedicated Ann Keenan, breaking the monopoly of the DCH girls.

Striving for supremecy in the ladies race


Dublin once again easily retained their team title but they can expect a much stiffer challenge from Cork in the years to come if the likes of Sonia O’Sullivan, Carmel McCarthy, Anita Philpott and company realise their full potential.

Junior Men's Championship

Downes easily

John Downes

John Downes, another athlete who had a virus problem last year, seems to be back on the right track again and looked to have plenty in reserve over Stephen Judge, but the subsequent showing of both, in their respective Regional Championships, must have given hope to others, and we should see a cracking race for the Inter-Club title on February 23 at Santry.

Dublin were the masters of Cork in the county contest.

This morning, at 9am, the Cheshire Elite Marathon takes place in Pulford, Cheshire, England. Originally planned for Wrexham, Wales, it was transferred to Pulford, Cheshire, England, due to ongoing Covid restrictions in Wales.

Several Elite Irish athletes are aiming for Olympic Marathon Qualification standards of 2:11:30 (Men) and 2:29:30 (Women).

Stephen Scullion, Kevin Seaward and Paul Pollock have already run Qualifying times, so Gary O'Hanlon, Mick Clohisey and Sean Hehir must improve on their performances if they are to stand a chance of gaining one of the three coveted places. 

With only one place already 'booked', by Fionnuala McCormack, who ran 2:26:47, in Chicago, in 2019, there is slightly less at stake for the Irish women elite grouping of Ann-Marie McGlynn, Breege Connolly, Fionnuala Ross, and Cork club members Aoife Cooke (Eagle AC) and Dylan Hassett (Leevale AC). Each of this quintet are vieing for one of the two remaining places, with the main thrust likely to come from Cooke, Hassett and McGlynn.

With almost perfect weather conditions forecast, it would be great to see these women meet the qualifying standard. Based on previous performances, there is little between the main trio and, barring the unexpected, we are likely to see all three pretty much on-target until approx. 35k, when 'the real race' is likely to start.
