LETTERKENNY AC’s Ann-Marie McGlynn has missed out on Olympic qualifying.
After going agonisingly in Wales last month, McGlynn went again this morning at the S7 Marathon in Austria.
The race’s strap-line – ‘your final call for Tokyo’ – outlined the stakes.
McGlynn was on track when she went through the halfway mark in 75 minutes. The event was held in brutal weather conditions.
McGlynn needed to run a 2:29:30 race to book a place in Tokyo.
However, she dropped out just after the midway point.
In April, McGlynn was within four seconds of the qualifying mark when she smashed her PB to set a new Donegal record of 2:29:34 at the Cheshire Elite Marathon in Wrexham.Tags:
