Incredible from young Griggs especially after losing his brother recently.

Should be at the olympics. Some good sprint talent coming through. Mc Phillips also a good one.

He had done 8.11 at the Irish U20 championships last month. 14.15PB for the 5k earlier in the year as well. For a lad only training seriously for the last year or so he's bound to be one to keep an eye on. I see a few people who know a lot more about athletics than me reckon he's one of the best Irish athletes at his age they've ever seen

Tommy, what’s the craic with Scullion? Attention seeking or genuine issues about his on/off Olympics appearance?

I wouldn't want to play down mental health issues but I would have my doubts about him No1. I would stray into thinking the attention seeking category tbh but who can be sure.

I saw him on some controversy with some Dennehy article on twitter yesterday where some boy was questioning his comments about the troubles etc in the early noughties and he was none too pleased. Controversy never seems too far away from him.

Hugely talented.

Maybe it's been on before but I've not seen it...

The documentary currently on Sky Documentaries about Kipchoges sub two hour marathon attempt is some watch. Incredible feat of organisation not to mention his supreme talent obviously....
