    She still needs to get selected by Athletics Australia. If more than 3 qualify then she still needs to be one of the 3 they choose to send, so she’ll still need to show form.

    Is there much chance of that happening? 3 Aussies going fast than 2.24.xx

    She's the firm favourite for the 1st spot now

    Unlikely. But who knows. She still needs to show good form in Olympic year, but the bulk of the work re qualification is done now.

    Listening to her now....so refreshing to hear compared to the normal PR drivel that most sports people trot out.

    Yep, she comes over so well. She certainly isn't a bitter person!

    “If you feel good enough to do it then give it a go. Nobody else can tell you what your body is capable of. There is nothing to suggest that when you turn 40 you need to fall apart. It hasn’t happened for me and I feel fitter than I was ten years ago."

    Spoke to Sinead Diver ahead of this Sunday's New York Marathon.

    Jarlath O'Regan interviewed her for his podcast lately and it's exceptional. She really opens up about her time in school and the long lasting effects it had on her. A must listen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 362 ✭✭nannerby


    Well she is on Eurosport now looking forward to see how she goes.

    Big result still on though if she can consolidate now. Could yet be a top 6 placing depending on how things pan out.
