5 Reasons to watch The AAI Indoor Games this Sunday

Long time contributor to Irish Runner magazine, The Irish Examiner and JumpingTheGun.com’s Feidhlim Kelly previews this weekends AAI Indoor Games for Aertv.

The Athletics Ireland live stream powered by aertv with commentary from Jumping The Gun is set for its second instalment of 2015 at the GloHealth AAI Open Indoor Games this Sunday.

The production has gotten slicker and our commentary, thankfully, has gotten far better too.

1. European Indoor qualifying chase begins in earnest

A host of Ireland’s best athletes will be in pursuit of European Indoor qualifying times and marks on Sunday. The European Indoor Championships take place in Prague on March 6-8 and there were a number of qualifying marks set at the AAI Games last year. The men’s 1500m will see a number of athletes taking a tilt at the qualifying time including some international athletes. Sara Treacy and Ann-Marie McGlynn will be looking to dip under 9 minutes in the 3,000m to book their ticket to Prague. UCD’s Karl Griffin and Ciara Everard will be looking to lay down markers in their respective 800m races.

2. A Proper star

Kelly Proper is one of the most medal-laden athletes indoors in the national championships. I’ve lost count of the amount of medals she’s won between the 60m, 200m and long jump. One thing is for sure though, you won’t miss the powerful Ferrybank athlete as she speeds down the runway or around bends of the blue-boarded track in Athlone this Sunday. Proper will compete in the long jump and the 200m – she will be looking to get a European Indoor qualifier in the long jump.

 3. Travers takes to the 3,000m

John Travers always causes a stir when he takes to the track – you never know what is going to happen next. Travers, one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the country, won a mile race in 3:59 in the States last week and will compete over 3,000m on Sunday. Expect the unexpected and a time under 8 minutes which would add a 3,000m European qualifying time to the 1500m one he garnered last week.

4. The young and not so young

The AAI Games will bring some of Ireland’s top juniors back to the fore and this time they will have to compete against some of the “elder lemmings.” Trevor McGlynn is entered in the 60m Hurdles – he set an Irish junior record for the 60m hurdles 18 years ago which was only bettered last weekend by Sam Healy. They will toe the line against each other

5. Paul Robinson competition

There will be another competition this Sunday following on from the Mark English signed vest that was up for grabs last week.

Paul Robinson kindly (under slight duress from me) signed a vest for the competition this Sunday. To be in with a chance to win the European Championships 4th placer in the 1500m vest you’ll have to tune in and get your fingers on the ready via Twitter and Facebook to win.

    I have to add a comment as I have just joenid a club and it is fantastic. I was doing the BHAA runs all summer and I was doing around an 11 minute mile and when I went on my own run I wasn’t able to push myself any more. However, now that I’ve joenid a club I’m being thought how to get faster (and not just faster but happier!). I would have joenid one years ago but I thought that they were solely for the likes of Sonia O’Sullivan and that waddlers like me would have no business in them but there are a few others like me in the club so I don’t know why I didn’t join long ago. Furthermore there are all ages too and I get as must praise at the end of the night as those running twice my pace. I couldn’t recommend it more. The benefits are even more than making you faster. Joining a club has made me like running more. The crowd is so varied it is a lovely social experience too. Furthermore the club I have joenid doesn’t demand a huge commitment. I only run with the club one evening a week. I am – depending on what I’ve time for. There are other club sessions though if you were able to commit to more. I’m only in the club a little more than a month and I’ve noticed a huge difference already. Initially I used get too puffed to participate in the full session and they were really nice about me dropping out and joining back in when I felt ready. This past week I was able to do the full session and I wasn’t even always last! Another positive in joining a club is that is doesn’t cost that much – way cheaper than a gym and you get the use of a track which is much safer than the road this time of the year. Another benefit to joining a club is that there are more races that you can enter and even the slower runners are encouraged to enter. That is slightly related to another advantage which is that being in a club brings a little bit of a team sport to running (as much as you’d like) which you wouldn’t get from running otherwise. I’m sure there are many more advantages but for now, Leonie – definitely you should join a club!!!!!!!
