EURO CROSS SET FOR 2020 DUBLIN RETURN
WHEN Dublin last staged the European Cross Country Championships, back in 2009, Hayley Yelling won the women’s title and Mo Farah passed out shortly after finishing second in the men’s race to Alemayehu Bezabeh – a Spanish runner who has subsequently served a doping ban.
In two years’ time this kind of drama is set to return to the Irish capital when it holds the European Championships again. The event will be held at the National Sports Campus in the Blanchardstown area on the outskirts of Dublin on December 13, 2020.
In addition, European Athletics says its under-20 championships in 2021 will be held in Tallinn, Estonia.
