Statement regarding gastroenteritis outbreak


Statement regarding gastroenteritis outbreak

Athletics Ireland are taking all possible measures to protect their athletes in light of the gastroenteritis outbreak in the IAAF Team hotel at the World Championships in London.

All Irish athletes yet to compete have yet to arrive in London and will be put in alternative accommodation, thereby eliminating any contact with those who may potentially have been exposed to the virus.

Athletes who have finished competing already have been offered a flight home to protect their health.

Athletics Ireland’s medical team has been in constant contact with the IAAF medical team and have implemented all appropriate protocols to protect the health of the Irish athletes.  Thomas Barr is the only Irish athlete who has been affected.
