The Irish team for the European Youth Olympics Festival was named last weekend. Louise Shanahan was rewarded for her recent good form with selection for the 800m. It has been a great season so far for Louise as she has improved with nearly every race. She achieved the sub 2:14 qualification mark at the Cork Graded Leagues three weeks ago and improved on that again two weeks ago with a superb 2:10 at the IMC meet in Greystones.
The EYOFs take place from July 14-19 in Utrecht, Netherlands.
