Closing Stages of 5,000m

Fearghal Curtin - Bryan Clay Invitational 5000m 2019 from Webmaster - Cork Athletics on Vimeo.


Fearghal ran 13:53.53, in the Azusa Pacific Invitational, outside Los Angeles, in the 5000m last Thursday night, coming second to Morgan McDonald, an Australian based in Wisconsin, who is the National xcountry, 3k and 5K indoor Champion, on a track with short straights and wide bends.

There was a big number of competitors in the race, and Fearghal had to do a lot of wide running, to keep an eye on the leading group - This cost him time in the race. He ran cautiously, with the aim of getting under 14 minutes, to qualify for the Regionals, in Sacramento, in late May.

Fearghal was very pleased with his performance, which is ranked in the first 7 All Time Arizona State University Rankings.

Grace McKenzie, McNeese State University & Belgooly AC


Grace McKenzie, McNeese State University and Belgooly AC, continues to rewrite the McNeese State track and field record book, in numerous events. Last Friday, April 20th, the McNeese junior broke the school in the 400mH hurdles, after posting a blistering time of 59.97 seconds. It also brings Grace up to 21st position in the Irish All-Time 400mH standings

That time makes her the first Mcneese State woman to break the 60 second barrier in the 400mH, in just her fifth-time ever competing in the event. In doing so, she maintains her top ranking in the Southland Conference. In the 100mH hurdles, Grace finished first, in 14.02 sec, in the inaugural Daeshon Gordon 100-meter hurdles race, named after Daeshon Gordon, an All-American from Northwestern State, who tragically passed away last year. 

Grace was also in action in the field events, where she placed second in the long jump, with a leap of 5.88m, behind US National Indoor Champion, Jasmyn Steeles, from Northwestern State.
