Carroll is European Champion!

Mark Carroll capped a magnificant indoor season when he took gold today in the 3000m at the European Indoor Championships in Ghent.  Mark won in a time of 7:49.24, from Rui Silva of Portugal (7:49.90), and John Maycock of Britain (7:49.97).  Afterwards Mark said, “I definitely wanted this one. I tried to stay relaxed as long as possible…..The guy who times his attack perfectly to the last possible moment usually wins it. Today it was me!”.  Mark’s win came on the heels of a silver medal by James Nolan in the 1500m yesterday.  Go to the European Indoor Championships Website for all the details.
