Oxford 2022 - Day 5 (Track & Field)

Oxford 2022 - Day 5 (Track & Field)

Day 5 at the games, and all attention now turned to the Track & Field Athletes. Competing for Ireland in the Throwing competitions were Mike Keohane (Shot Put & Discus). On the Track we had Marie O'Connor (100m), Ron Grainger (100m), Trevor Lynch (1500m), James Nolan (400m),and John Moran (1500m).

An what an amazing day it was with all 6 athletes claiming medals in their individual events.

Mike Keohane, as solid as ever in the Shot Put, throwing a season's best (SB) to secure a hard fought Silver.

Shortly after that back at the track, Marie O'Connor won her fourth medal of the games; a Silver in the 100m, and then Ron Grainger added to his Gold in the Golf with a fantastic Bronze medal, also in the 100m.

Attention then turned to the 1500m distance and double success for the Irish here with Gold for John Moran (completed the set of Gold, Silver & Bronze collection), and a Silver for Trevor Lynch. The last man on the track for Ireland was James Nolan and he rounded off what must be one of the best days in Track & Field for Transplant Team Ireland history by securing a Silver in the 400m.

Tomorrow is the final day of competition and we are back at the Track for what will be a truly compelling day of competition.
