Kildare's Fitzimons in Euro Athletics Action

Real hope of making 800m final


The European Athletics championships begin in Munich today.

Kildare AC athlete John Fitzimons has a real chance of making Sunday week’s 800 metres final

The 24-year-old won the national title in 2021, but was pipped by two-time Olympian Mark English for this year’s title.

The Kildare native is sixth on the all-time Irish fastest list and was second in the Stockholm Diamond League in June,

He has run two PBs this season, with a 1:45.66 in Spain the quickest time he has ever run the 800.
