Amazing reversal of Fortune as Sittuk stripped of Irish title as O'Hanlon declared champion!
Freddy Sittuk has been stripped of his title of Irish National Marathon champion after failing to meet eligibility criteria, with Gary OHanlon declared as the first Irish finisher across the line at the Dublin City marathon.
The Kenyan-born Raheny Shamrock runner finished fourth in Sundays Dublin marathon, and has been running on and off for Dublin club over the past five years.
Good work by the CCOAI (Competition Committee of Athletics Ireland) for catching this one in time.
- and Congratulations to Gary OHanlon for taking 1st for an Irish Runner................
