Report From National Track and Field
National Senior T&F Championships 2020 by Joan Hough
Frank O’Brien made his national senior track debut in the 800m at Morton Stadium on Saturday, 29th August. There were four heats with the first two finishers automatically qualifying for the final plus the two fastest losers. Frank ran very well in the final heat, covering all the moves with his tactical acuteness and running through the line to finish third in a pb time of 1:58.02 and the sixth fastest loser.
The experience gained from this competing and of competing behind closed doors should stand to him as Frank toes the line again this Saturday for the National Junior 3,000m Steeplechase, his final national junior track race. We wish Frank the best of luck.
Show a clean pair of heels.
Masters Joan Hough and John Hennessy will also be in action on the track next weekend so we wish them both the best also.
