Ann-Marie McGlynn (Letterkenny AC) and Mick Clohisey (Raheny Shamrock AC) have been announced as the Irish team captains for the European Cross Country Championships in Samokov, Bulgaria on December 14th.
National Endurance Coach Chris Jones said “I was delighted to offer Anne Marie and Mick the captaincy roles. Both have had careers spanning from the junior to the senior ranks which sets a real example to the youngsters coming through. It’s a big boost for the team as I know both will offer words of advice and wisdom to the younger athletes.”
The shift towards appointing team captains for the championships has been made to allow for the more experienced athletes to take ownership and leadership and to foster a culture of collaboration and performance within the Irish team.
