Heffernan to lead Irish in China
17 Apr 2014 16:04
World 50km Race Walking Champion Rob Heffernan will lead the Irish Team at the IAAF World Race Walking Cup in Taicang, China from 3-4 May.
Heffernan, last year’s Athletics Ireland athlete of the year, made his competitive comeback on the race walking circuit at the Lugano Race Walking Grand Prix in Switzerland last month. He finished fifth in the 20km race in Lugano in a time of 1:20'57".
Heffernan has recently returned from a three-week training camp at altitude in Johannesburg and will use the race in China to further his preparations for the 50km Race Walk at the European Track & Field Championships in Zurich in August.
Brendan Boyce (Letterkenny AC), Luke Hickey (UCC), Cian McManamon (Westport AC) and Laura Reynolds (Mohill AC) will join Heffernan on the team in China.
