Affidea Ambassador Thomas Barr wins 8th consecutive title at the Irish Life Health National Championships

A week after running his season’s best, Affidea Ambassador Thomas Barr had the perfect send off to the European Championships in Berlin by setting a championship record of 49.56 to take his 8th straight 400m hurdles title at the Irish Life Health National Championships.

Thomas is coming into form at just the right time, having set a new 200 metres personal best at the Cork City Sports International Athletics Meeting and lowering his season’s best even further at the Diamond League meeting in London.

Waterford Olympian & Affidea Ambassador Thomas Barr is on a roll!

He said; “If I was to win a medal this year, it would be hard fought. I’ve been promising it long enough! I feel like I’m coming into my own again; I’m back to my old self and I feel in better shape now than ever.”

“This season has been one of my most consistent ever in training. I haven’t had any injuries, so I’ve been able to run double the number of races than in previous years where niggles held me back. Thanks to everyone for all their support, it really means a lot and I hope to make the podium yet again!”

Best of luck Thomas from our #AffideaFamily, we’ll be cheering you on as always.
