Finn Valley AC’s Noreen Bonner claimed individual bronze and a team gold at the World Masters Athletics Championships in Toruń.
Bonner finished the half marathon in one hour, 35 minutes and 35 seconds.
That was enough for a brilliant bronze medal in the W60 category. And Bonner led the Irish team to gold.
Bonner was just 15 seconds behind Christine Sachs from Germany, who finished 1:35:20, while the individual gold was won by Spain’s Marcelina Hernaiz in 1:34:15.
Also today, Finn Valley’s Catriona Devine was sixth in the women’s 1,500m (W45) final, finishing in 4:50.60, while club-mate Kieran Carlin was ninth in the men’s 1,500m (M50) final.
Earlier in the week, Mark Connolly was a gold medal winner with Ireland in the 8k cross-country while Kay Byrne took a team bronze.
Sinead McConnell returned a national indoor record of 15:42.88 in the 3000m walk.Tags:
