Alex O'Shea from Cork is selected to represent Ireland at the World 100km Championship
The latest news is that Alex O'Shea of St.Finbarr's AC has been selected to represent Ireland at the World 100km Championships in Spain.
This follows on from his impressive 5th position finish at the Irish 24 Hour Championships in Belfast during the Summer. While he didn't make the Irish 24 hour team on that occasion, he should be well suited for the 100km event where he can combine his 24 hour endurance with his 'shorter' marathon speed.
This will be the first Irish singlet for the Cork athlete and most likely not the last.
The 100km championships will be held in Spain on Sunday the 27th of November 2016 and will have 357 competitors from 33 countries.
