Fiona Gettings set for European Championships
Fiona Gettings returns to Poland later this week to compete at the European Masters Athletics Championships. Last March, Fiona won a silver medal in the F40 8km cross-country race at the World Masters held in Torun. The city is once again hosting with this year’s event for European nations only. First up for Fiona will be the indoor 3000m when she will look to win a medal for Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day which will be followed two days later by the 8km on a parkland cross-country course. Best of luck to Fiona from all at Longford AC.
