At the Cork City International Sports on Saturday last, two race-walking athletes from West Waterford AC set new Irish records, one senior and one junior. In finishing second to Luke Adams from Australia in the 3km, Jamie Costin clocked a brilliant new senior record time of 11.12.07 and for a man better known over the longer distances it was a brilliant result .In the ladies’ 3km Kate Veale smashed her own Irish junior record to pieces when she had a time of 12.58.06, her first time under 13 minutes for the distance (the race was won in 12.51.06 by Olive Loughnane, world silver medalist, and Kate was not too far off at the finish). In the Long Jump Kelly Proper, Ferrybank, was again below her best as she finished third with 6.19m and David McCarthy, West Waterford, was sixth in the 1500m in a bunch finish with inches separating the first six home. Another Ferrybank athlete, Alex Flynn, was third in a development 1500m. On Saturday and Sunday at meetings in France, Jessie Barr from Ferrybank was in top form as she won a 400m Hurdles on Saturday in 59.78 secs and on Sunday she was third in a similar race in a personal best time of 58.74 secs.
