Boyce forced to withdraw from men’s 50km race walk


Boyce forced to withdraw due to injury

Brendan Boyce (Finn Valley) has been forced to withdraw from tomorrow morning’s (August 13) men’s 50km race walk at the IAAF World Championships in London due to a grade 1 hamstring tear.

Boyce had been liaising with the medical team and had hoped to toe the line on the streets of London but unfortunately isn’t fit to race.

That leaves Robert Heffernan (Togher) as the sole competitor in the 50km with Alex Wright (Leevale) contesting the 20km.
