The National Combined Events Championships were held recently, in Santry, Dublin.. Brian Lynch (Old Abbey AC) achieved the Athletics Ireland standard for the youth decathlon, at the European Athletics U18 Championships in Györ, Hungary from 5th - 8th July. Day 1 went smoothly, however day 2, was, literally speaking, a washout, weatherwise, and had him o n his knees after the javelin. Only a 16 sec PB in the 1500m would get him the required 6400 points, but paced by his cousin Diarmuid O'Connor, from Bandon AC, who came 2nd after Brian. Brian timed his run to perfection, achieving the qualification standard with just 11 points to spare.

The wind requirement needed to be less than +2 m/s on average, and with +2.8 in 100, -1.6 in LJ and +4.1 in 110H, he just  got that.
