As soon as I turned on the coverage McGlinchey was pulling himself out of a ditch. I wouldn't know too much about the local MTB scene, is Cameron Orr big stuff?  McGlinchey won the Irish Nationals a couple of weeks ago, maybe Orr rides under a GB Licence?

He probably lives in GB, but a cyclist in NI can affiliate to Cycling Ireland or get a UK licence. Its been a while since I looked info about it,  clubs in NI generally affiliate to Cycling Ireland but individuals can get a UK licence. Open to correction

To be fair it used to be Danny Boy played at commonwealth, not sure these days, but you are still recognising a failed colonial entity(who pillaged all around them) by taking part and who have The Queen at its head. Stoops id say

England not using GSTQ as an anthem in Birmingham, I think it's Jerusalem.

Wonder what NI will use!!!

Griggs through to the final - happy days.

8:08 so capable of a lot more however it's only qualifying.

A medal would be a stretch but this guy is the best Irish runner to appear in years - here's hoping.

He basically jogged the last lap as he was so clear in 4th. With 6 going through he didn't need to push himself
