Weekly News – 2nd March 2020

National Indoors: The highlight of the Irish indoor athletics calendar took place in Abbotstown last weekend with the National Senior Indoor Championships. Four of our young athletes were in action and well done to all in competing in what was for most of them their first national seniors. Cian McPhillips, having won his heat on Saturday, finished an excellent 4th place in the men’s 1500m on Sunday in a time of 3:49.63 in a race won in a championship best-ever performance. Yemi Talabi had a busy weekend commencing with Saturday’s women’s long jump in which her 5.13m jump saw her finish 13th. On Sunday, Yemi lined up in the 60m. A superb 3rd place in her heat in 7.53 earned her a spot in the final. Lining up against many experienced sprinters, Yemi placed 7th with the exact same time. Reaching the final for someone so young is a fantastic achievement and bodes well for another big year ahead. Aaron Kelly was in sprints action over both days. Saturday’s 200m saw him run 24.01 and he followed up with a 7.43 in Sunday’s 60m in solid performances. Nelvin Appiah entered the fray on Sunday in the high jump. In a close contest, Nelvin was edged out of a medal on count back finishing 4th with a best effort of 1.95m. No doubt had Nelvin not had to have been at the Athletics Ireland awards in Tullamore late on Saturday night, he would have stood a better chance of performing to his best. It was still however a great placing for a junior athlete. One must really have to question the wisdom of Athletics Ireland in scheduling an annual awards night in Tullamore on the same weekend as the national senior indoors in Dublin. 

Road Race: Our annual road race took place on Sunday last with a great turnout of runners in each of the distances. The recent inclement weather gave way to blue skies which was most welcome. Well done to all who took part in the 5k and 10k and also to the 129 primary school children who did the 2k fun run. Many thanks to all who helped with the staging of the event and to those who provided refreshments including McCarrick’s Cash and Carry, McDonalds and Centra Tarmonbarry. We are also very grateful for the help of the Gardai and Civil Defence as well as the Mall/Longford Scouts for the use of the facilities. Prize winners: 5k Men: 1. Andrew Nevin, 2. Derek Nugent, 3. Jack Gallagher. Women: 1. Therese O’Connor, 2. Hazel Jones, 3. Sian Gallagher. O/40 Men: 1. Gary Brady. O/40 Women: 1. Madeline Doyle. Under 16 Boys: 1. Jamie Dorr, 2. Daniel Higgins, 3. Senan Macken. Under 16 Girls: 1. Rachel Keenan, 2. Lucy Hogan, 3. Caoimhe Crossan. 10k Men: 1. Paddy Sharkey, 2. Niall Smith, 3. David Sheridan. Women: 1. Sinead Whitelaw, 2. Aine Kiernan, 3. Fiona Gettings. O/40 Men: 1. Krzysztof Kulej. O/40 Women: 1. Bernie McAdam. Winning the trophy for the school with the most participants in the 2k fun run was St. Teresa’s NS, Killoe (29 participants). Full results for the 5k and 10k are on:

Juvenile Star Awards: Congratulations to Nelvin Appiah whose excellent performances in 2019 were recognised at the Athletics Ireland Juvenile Star Awards in Tullamore on Saturday night. Nelvin was the award winner for County Longford and it is a fantastic honour to receive. He is certainly a great representative for our club and always entertains with his prowess in the high jump.

Millrose Games: Nelvin Appiah and Cian McPhillips jetted to New York last week to compete at Saturday’s Millrose Games. Cian ran in the New Balance Boys Mile – a race which features the top high-school runners from across the United States. He ran a terrific tactical race to take victory in 4:10.95. It really was a wonderful performance. Footage of the race can be viewed on the Longford AC Facebook page.

Weekly News – 27th January 2020

Record Breaker: Cian McPhillips got 2020 off to the best possible start with a blistering performance in the AAI Indoor League meet at the Athlone IT Arena on Sunday. Ten athletes took to the start line for the senior 1500m race of seven and a half laps of the 200m track. From the gun, John Fitzsimons (Kildare AC) set a fast tempo in his role as pacemaker. He churned out successive 30-second laps with Cian tucked in behind. The duo were closely followed by Conall Hayes (Le ChéileAC) and Kevin McGrath (Bohermeen AC) in the lead group. At 1200m, Fitzsimons stepped off to allow the trio battle it out for the closing stages. Cian immediately kicked for home and covered the final 300m in 44 seconds to record a winning time of 3:44.85 to claim victory by three seconds. His time set a new Irish Junior (under 20) indoor 1500m record by over a second breaking the previous record, set by Colin Costello, that had stood since 2005. The time was also the fastest by a junior athlete in Europe so far this year over the distance. It also placed 17-year-old Cian comfortably inside the ‘A’ qualifying standard for the World Junior Outdoor Championships which will be held in Kenya in July. Cian’s coach Joe Ryan was delighted with the race and even felt that Cian still had a little left in the tank at the end. Congratulations to Cian, Joe and Cian’s proud family on such a fantastic record-breaking performance achieved in the colours of Longford AC. His next race will be at the world famous Millrose Games in NewYork on February 8th. Representing his school, Moyne Community School, Cian will compete in the American High School Mile which will take place before the Wannamaker Mile at the 5,550-capacity Armory Arena.

Double Indoor Gold: AIT Arena was also the venue for Saturday’s AAI National Junior and U23 Indoor Championships where Yemi Talabi and Nelvin Appiah both won gold medals to make it a super weekend for Longford AC. Having won her heat earlier in the afternoon, Yemi claimed gold in the Junior Women’s 60m in a new personal best time of 7.57 seconds. The victory margin was a mere 0.01 of a second ahead of Patience Jumbo-Gula (Dundalk St. Gerards AC). Showing her versatility, Yemi also competed in the Long Jump where a jump of 5.31 metres earned her an excellent 5th place finish out of 19 entrants. Nelvin was also involved in a close battle in the Junior Men’s High Jump before securing gold after clearing a height of 2.03 metres. He earned the win on countback ahead of Geoffrey Joy-O’Regan (Sun Hill Harriers AC) who had also jumped 2.03m. Nelvin ‘doubled up’ as well and ran in the 60m Hurdles winning silver in a superb time of 8.27 seconds which was only 0.07 seconds off gold. Next up for Nelvin will be the Millrose Games where he will compete in the High Jump. Congratulations to Yemi and Nelvin in representing their families, our club and the county so well winning national medals over the past two weekends. Well done also to Aaron Kelly who put in fine performances in the men’s under 23 sprint distances of 60m and 200m.

Training: Juvenile training continues on Friday at 7pm on the astro pitch with Little Athletics taking place in the sports hall. As the Connacht Indoor Track and Field Championships are fast approaching on February 22nd / 23rd, it is important that all competing juvenile members (born in or before 2009) attend training on Friday in the Mall. Deadline for entries is February 7th. In advance of the championships, two training sessions will take place at the indoor track in Athlone IT on Saturday February 8th (1.30pm – 3.30pm) and Sunday February 16th (3.30pm – 5.30pm).
