COOLMEEN’s Niamh Markham took home a bronze medal at the Irish Life Health National Track and Field Championships held earlier this month.

It was a busy two day schedule at the 150th edition of the championships which took place at Morton Stadium.

Representing Ennis Track, Niamh claimed an impressive third place finish in the 1500m. Carla Sweeney (Rathfarnham W.S.A.F. AC) grabbed the national title, leaving nothing to chance by controlling the pace of the race in a brilliant display of front running (4:37.96). It was a bunched finish in the hunt for podium places with Maisy O’Sullivan (St Abbans) securing a gritty silver medal in 4.38.53, with Niamh following hot on her heels in 4:39.21.

Niamh was best of the Irish in May at the Irish Milers Club promotion held at the Mary Peters Track, Belfast when she finished in third spot in the women’s 1500m with a time of 4:26:30.

Cathal Crosbie of Cratloe had a fourth place finish in the 400m with his Ennis Track clubmate Jemil Saidi competing in the heats.

Crosbie had to settle for a tenth place finish in the 800m final with Ennis Track duo Michael Keane and Colin Ryan in the heats.

Sprinter, Gabriel Kehinde advanced to the semi-finals of the 100m but the Ennis Track representative narrowly missed out on a place in the final
