The SPAR European Cross Country Championships will take place in Dublin on December 12th on the purpose-built cross country course at the Sport Ireland Campus one year after they were originally scheduled to take place.

We spoke to Olympian Sarah Healy who will be taking part in the Championships after switching back from the track where she competed for Team Ireland at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

For a number of years, I coached Sarah as a speedy and tenacious centre back in Gaelic Football, probably part of the reason why she chose athletics!

You can watch nack our conversation above where we covered the switchback between different training regimes, how special it will be to compete in a major Championships on home soil, and how she felt after her Olympic adventure in Japan and the interview after her heat with David Gillick that captured so many sports fans hearts.
