ANN-MARIE MCGLYNN wants to keep a place on the Irish Cross Country team after storming to victory in the 28th British & Irish Masters International Cross-Country Championships at Santry Demesne yesterday.
Last December, McGlynn captained the Irish women to a bronze medal at the European Cross Country Championships in Samokov, Bulgaria.
Now, the Letterkenny AC woman aim to win a place on the team that will be in action in Hyères-Toulon in France next month.
“My target is a place on the Irish senior team and this was perfect preparation,” she said after a brilliant Masters debut at Santry when she coasted to victory in the women’s 6k event.
McGlynn led the Irish W35 team to glory.
Her Letterkenny AC team-mates Natasha Adams and Fionnuala Diver were second and third.
McGlynn will now target the National Inter-Clubs next weekend when places on the Irish team are up for grabs.
It has been quite the season for Inishowen AC’s Pauric McKinney and his rich vein of form continued yesterday when he won the M50 title in style.Tags:
