Claire McSweeney had a great run at the British Milers’ Club meet in Watford last night. Competing in the 800m ‘A’ race, she finished 3rd on the night in a brand new PB of 2:07.97. Claire has been running with renewed confidence in the last few months and her new PB last night comes just days after she won the 1500m at the National Leagues, where she also ran a 56-second leg in the 4×400 relay.
Also in action at the BMC meet last night was Seán Tobin of Clonmel. Seán put in a phenomenal performance at the Leevale T&F Meet back in April when he ran 3:51 on his own in blustery conditions. Last night he ran a 3:46.41 PB to finish 3rd in the 1500m ‘A’ race, which was unfortunately just 0.11 outside the ‘A’ standard for the World Juniors.
