Weekend of PBs for Irish athletes

Fionnuala Britton (Sli Cualann AC) ran her third 3,000m race in the space of eight days in Germany today, but the effort proved too much for her and she finished well off the European indoor standard with a time of 9:31.86.

Brian Murphy (UCC AC) became the sixth Irish athlete to run under 49 seconds when he placed third in his heat of the 400m at the AVIVA UK Indoor Trials and Championships in Sheffield.
