The December Tipp FM sports star of the month award has been announced.

On last night’s Extra-Time with Ronan Quirke, Seán Tobin of Clonmel Athletic Club was named the winner.

Tobin competed in his first ever marathon in December where he set a new record for the fastest marathon ever recorded on the continent of Antarctica.

In minus 14 degrees temperatures, the Clonmel man ran a time of 2:53:33 just 1000km north of the South Pole.

The Tipp FM Sports Star of the month award is in association with the Talbot Hotel, Clonmel and John Quirke Jewellers in Cahir.
