Despite the obvious challenges, some of Ireland's top international athletes are still training hard and taking part in select events. Kate Veale from Waterford is one of the top female Irish race walkers and she finished first in a 5k race in the Czech Republic over the weekend.

Kate's winning time was 23m 13s which is about 7:30/mile pace. Remember that this is race walking and not running!

Well done Kate, great to see our top athletes competing. It's also refreshing to see a good news story about athletics, that actually reports on the event and not give a personal view about athletes. Some of the language used on another platform by a Cork so called webmaster, has been hard to read.
