Steven Colvert (Crusaders AC) has broken the Irish U23 100m Record running 10.35 to win his race at the Occidental Invitational in California. The record was previously held by Para-Olympian Gold medallist Jason Smyth. This improved on Colvert’s personal best of 10.45 which he set early in the week at the Steve Scott Invitational in San Diego. Colvert also won his 200m race in 20.77, just one hundredth off his personal best. At the same meet Paul Hession (Athenry) placed sixth in his 100m race in 10.64 and recorded a time of 21.44 in the 200m.

Joanne Cuddihy (Kilkenny AC) produced another excellent performance to finish second in the 400m in Golden Grand Prix in Kawasaki, Japan in 51.78, with the American Mary Wineberg third in 52.36. The World Champion Amantle Montsho of Botswana won the race in 50.52.
