Two alumni of St Mary’s University, Twickenham and the Endurance Performance Centre have been selected to compete for their countries at the European Indoor Championships between Thursday 4th – Sunday 7th March.
Hosted in Torun, Poland, the Championships will be hosted this year without fans but with a full schedule of 26 events in line with Covid-19 guidelines.
Jack Rowe, a graduate of our Sport and Exercise Science BSc programme, has been selected to represent Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the 3000m.
Elsewhere, fellow alumna Georgie Hartigan has been selected for the Irish team. Georgie graduated from the MSc International Business Management last year and will be competing for Ireland in the 800m. This is both Jack and Georgie’s first senior track call-up for their countries.
Recent British record-setting 800m runner and St Mary’s alumnus Elliot Giles was also selected for the the British European Championship team, but has withdrawn in order to focus on the outdoor season and upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
St Mary’s Performance Coach Craig Winrow said, “St Mary's EPC wish them all the best at the Euro's and I am sure all the EPC athletes will be cheering them on.”
