Most pleasing athletic performance

There are numerous races which gave me enormous satisfaction, and I was always exceptionally proud at representing Northern Ireland but winning the Ulster Schools 1500m probably gave me the biggest satisfaction.

Most disappointing athletic performance

The Scottish steeplechase in 1996. I was on great form and probably too confident. I was beaten by two great Scottish blokes and our performances ranked us first, second and third in Great Britain that year.


Any other Comments

Good luck to all the Annadale Striders. Hopefully see you soon.
