Sensational anchor leg...
...from the Irish intervarsity women's 4x400 final, the last leg produced an explosive finish that should be an inspiration for any runner digging deep into their resolve...over 500,000 hits on youtube just a day after it hit the internet...
Over 2.3 million hits now. And I even saw it pop up on Pete Bland's Facebook page.
It's just real feel good stuff, at a time when track running seems to grab nothing but negative headlines. The sister of the woman beaten into second is a fine mountain runner here in Ireland, the two sisters feature on cross country national selections, and she did so much hard work in reeling in the leading runner. But 400m would not be her distance, and suspect she'd rather be on a muddy field.
