FINAL Day brings further Success for TEAM TSC
The final day of competition saw the TEAM TSC team of athletes continue as they had started on day 1. Some fantastic performances across the team meant multiple PB’s some great racing and some excellent podium finishes were the order of the day. In the first event of the Day Adam Flanagan & Eoin Feighan joined the TEAM, having been unavailable for the early few days, to deliver strong PB’s in the 1500FC. Flanagan finished in the Silver medal position and a QT for the Division 1 Irish Age Groups with Eoin Feighan finishing in a new PB for him and a 4th place finish. Off to a great start!!
Next up was the 200BC with Jessica Burke, Caoilfhinn Tan & Aisling Field all delivering PB’s in the event. Burke qualified in 2nd place for the final and returned this PM to convert that result to a Silver medal and earn herself a further IAG Division 1 QT. In the boys 200BC, Stephen Herlihy (12Yrs) qualified for the final with a new PB, returned this evening to further improve on his morning effort and finish in 9th place in the event.
