Mawdsley among 20 Tipperary athletes competing today at National Championships

The 149th Irish Athletics National Championships get underway today, with plenty of Tipperary interest.

20 athletes from the Premier county will be competing across a variety of events throughout the day.

Among those is Newport AC’s Sharlene Mawdsley, who is competing in the women’s 400m heats from quarter-past-6.


Mawdsley was a part of Ireland’s 4x400m mixed relay team that secured Olympic Qualification in May, and will be looking to impress to ensure her place in that team for next month’s games in Tokyo.
