We are proud to announce that The Altitude Centre Ireland’s Colin Griffin has achieved the Olympic Standard for the 50k walk at the IAAF World Cup of Race walking.

Colin Griffin put the heartache of recent qualification bids to rest in Saransk, Russia yesterday morning. Griffin was on two warnings after 10km but maintained his composure and form to move up the field to finish 15th in 3:52.55. This was well inside the required 3:59 on what was his last opportunity to achieve the time.

Congratulations Colin.
