Brendan Boyce claims silver at Irish Life Health National 20km race walk

Donegal’s Brendan Boyce won a silver medal at the Athletics at the Irish Life Health National 20km race walk championships in St Anne’s Park in Dublin.

World ranking points were at stake ahead of the Olympic Games.

It was the same one-two as in last week’s 5,000m race walk at the national indoor championships with David Kenny (Farranfore Maine Valley) coming out on top ahead of Boyce (Finn Valley), who starred in Doha at the world championships, and Alex Wright (Leevale).

In the Derry ten miler, Letterkenny AC's Anne Marie McGlynn finished in first place.
