Matt's Unique Weekend Double!
[acidfree:8990 align=right size=175 title=""]Belated congratulations to serial race-winner Matt Bidwell on his unique racing double last weekend.
First up, Matt took the V2 3,000m indoors title at the 2013 National Masters in the all-new indoor arena in Athlone with a 5 second PB run of 8m 53s. In fact Matt's time was the fastest recorded on the day across all age-groups at 3,000m.
Congratulations also to the following GCH athletes on their podium positions at the same meeting:
800m (V2) - Jane Walsh (2nd)
1500m (V2) - Eamon Hornibrook (3rd)
3000m (V6) - Martin McEvilly (1st)
Shot-putt (V5) - Richard O'Hanlon (2nd)
Matt doubled-up on Sunday by making it 3-in-a-row at the annual Maree 8K road-race, winning out in a time of 26m 19s. GCH's Owen Byrne and Niall Cunningham were second and third respectively.
Results as per: Maree 8K - 2013
Note - there's a nice piece in yesterday's Irish Independent FIT magazine about Matt's weekend double.
