New International Grade race course measurer in Cork...
John Quigley (Eagle AC) from Cork has now been appointed Road Race Measurer Grade 'B' by AIMS and the IAAF. Following some 6 years as an Irish National Grade Measurer, John underwent an approval process comprising an initial scrutiny/observation by an AIMS/IAAF Grade A Measurer, followed by the submission of measurement documentation from six major race measurements and a final measurement exercise under Hugh Jones, AIMS International Measurement Administrator for English-speaking Europe and Africa.
There are now 7 Irish AIMS/IAAF Measurers; One Grade A measurer (AAI's Tom McCormack) and six Grade B Measurers: T J Beattie (Loughrea AC), Thomas Clinton (Navan), Jim Gonnelly (Dundalk), Martin Kearney (Dublin), Billy Kennedy (Dublin), John Quigley (Cork). There are approx. 230 AIMS/IAAF Measurers worldwide.
