Another Medal for Mick at the World Masters Athletic championship

August 8, 2015 0

More  great news on running postman Mick Traynor who won bronze in the 5000m on the track in Lyon on Friday morning.   It was an epic battle and Mick led it out from the gun for approx 5 laps and in 38 degrees which came up as yellow weather alert in south of France he was overtaken by the chasing pack.   Then with two laps to go he fought back to fourth place and then a sprint in the last 100m he overtook the Spanish favourite and claimed the bronze behind the two leading UK athletes.

Well done Mick on another great win…
