Leevale’s John Corr has had a busy end to the indoor season, and was in action at last week’s European Masters Championships in Ghent. Competing in both the 60m and 200m he did very well to qualify from the heats in both, winning his heat of the 60m. He was unfortunate not to qualify for the final, however, as he finished third in both semis, missing out by just 0.03s in the 60m. It was a good 4 races for John, which placed him 11th overall out of the 72 athletes entered for both events.
Carmel Parnell was also due to compete at the Europeans, but had to withdraw due to injury.
Last month John Corr was also in action as a guest at the Southern Counties Veterans Championships in England, held in the aptly-named Lee Valley Arena! John was also in great form there, winning both the 60m and 200m events in style.
