Boyce best of the Irish in China 

Brendan Boyce (Finn Valley) was the top Irish performer at the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships in Taicang, China over the weekend with a 17th place finish in 3:53:32.

“Good to get a decent race under my belt with 17th at worlds,” said Boyce afterwards who continued saying “my best global finish to date and 9th European athlete. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in again in 3 months, in Berlin, when I will be 100%.

Boyce started his race in cloudy and windy conditions on the Saturday while on a warm and muggy Sunday morning Cian McManamon (Westport) was 38th in the 20km race in 1:27:17 while Alex Wright (Leevale) did not finish.
