Three Leevale members, Lizzie Lee and Alex Wright have been selected, having achieved the respective qualification times. Donie Walsh has been appointed Athletics ireland's Distance Coach for the Olympic Games, while Michelle Finn awaits formal ratification, early in July. Leevale member Brian Keane is also Rio bound, having qualified in the Triathlon. Leevale hope that other members will also qualify, before the looming qualification deadline.
