European Junior C/ship

July 29, 2011

Sundrive Junior Sprinter , Eoin Mullen has broken the Junior KiIo Record previously held by Felix English improving the time by over 2 seconds as he placed 5th in the European Championships in Anadia,  Portugal with a time of 1.05.565 sec.

Perhaps even more noteworthy is that he also broke both the Junior and Senior record for the Flying 200 with a time of 10.565.  The previous record was set in Moscow by former multiple National Sprint Champion Kieran Leahy in 2007.  He lost out in the Quarter Finals but wont the 5-8 sprint.  It is hugely significant that a Junior rider has now logged the fastest ever sprint qualifying time for an Irish rider and it bodes well for his future at International level.

His remaining event of the Chamionships is now the Keirin
