    European Relays

    Phil Healy ran a great anchor leg in the 2nd Semi Final of the womens 4x100m to help the team achieve 4th place in a time of 43.84 seconds
    This is a new National record beating the old record of 43.93 which was set in the European Championships in 2010.
    Unfortunately the team just missed out on qualifying for the final.
    Well done Phil.

    Excellent action photo from our own Frank Stam of the final changeover in the relay.

    Well done Phil

    Well done Phil Healy who put in a great performance today in the heats of the 100m at the European Track & Field Championships in Zurich.
    She finished 6th place in 11.53 and unfortunately will not progress to the next round.
    Phil will be back in action later in the week at part of the 4x100m relay team where she will be hoping for a bit more luck.

Bandon AC is celebrating 50th years since the founding of the club and as a tribute to sports in bygone years, there will also be 3 cycle races as part of the program which are sure to catch the imagination of the crowd as it will be the first time many will have seen cycle race on grass. Also in attendance will be the Bandon & District Brass and Reed Band who will be entertaining the crowd.
    This is a fantastic opportunity to finish the season with good performance and some mouth watering clashes are in prospect with a number of Junior/Senior athletes committed to attending.
    There will be cash prizes for all the Junior/ Senior events as well as the cycle races, medals/trophies for the juvenile events. There will also be a raffle on the day with all proceeds going to help defray travel and accommodation costs for Bandon AC member George Waugh, whose son Leon was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour.
