Longford AC half marathon winner qualifies for London 2012 Olympic Games Marathon

Congratulations to Linda Byrne from Dundrum South Dublin Athletic Club who got the qualifying time for the London 2012 Olympic Games Marathon when she ran a terrific time of 2 hours 36 minutes and 21 seconds which was inside the qualifying time of 2 hours 37 minutes standard at the Dublin Marathon.

Linda won the Longford AC Half Marathon in July and this race was vital in her plans for qualifying for London. This is a clear indication of the quality and organization of races put on in Longford and the caliber of athlete who competes in these races. No doubt everyone will monitor her progress as she prepares for London and everyone in the club wishes her the best of luck
