Ireland's PJ Barron finished in 91st place in a grueling Men's 15km individual cross country ski at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

He finished in a time of 43 minutes 50 seconds, over 10 minutes behind gold medal winner Dario Cologna of Switzerland.

Italy and the Czech Republic claimed silver and bronze respectively.

Barron admitted that his first 10km 'wasn't so great' but felt his debut at the Olympic Winter Games was 'a great learning experience'.
