Eoin Mullen - Records Tumble!

June 12, 2011

Sundrive Sprinter Eoin Mullen who is the current Junior sprint champion continues to progress well from his time training at the UCI centre in Aigle, Switzerland. He had placed 4th in the White Hope Trophy in Manchester prior to his departure and his performances have gone from strength to strength as new now races in the colours of the UCI where he is currently training.  His first outing was was in the Fenioux Trophy in the Georges Preveral Velodrome where he posted  the 2nd fastest 200 time of 11.324sec which was a new National Outdoor record on the 333m concrete track.  He placed 3rd overall in the sprint rounds.

His latest outing saw him compete in the final round of the Fenioux Trophy in Hyreres where he further bettered his 200 time to a new Irish Junior Record of 10.920 sec on the 250m wooden track.  He placed 2nd overall in the sprint competion but after getting himself to second wheel in the keirin, he crashed out half a lap from the bell but escaped with minor cuts and bruises.  The incident has left him undetered and looking forward to more hard work and the rewards that it brings under his coaches at the UCI.
