AIT International Grand Prix coverage

The recent AIT International Grand Prix athletics meeting in Athlone will air on TG4 this coming Friday night at 7.30pm.

Another full house packed into the impressive indoor arena at AIT recently to witness the fourth running of Ireland's premier indoor athletics event, featuring former world and Olympic sprint hurdles champion, Sally Pearson, 800m World Championship silver-medallist, Melissa Bishop, Morton Games winner and Olympic finalist, Ryan Gregson, and one of the fastest women in the world this year over 60 metres, Christina Manning.

European Championship bronze medallist from last summer, Ciara Mageean, ace sprinter Phil Healy, European Championship fourth-placer Paul Robinson and Euro Indoors veteran, John Travers, were the biggest Irish names competing.

Friday night's broadcast marks a return to athletics coverage for TG4 after last airing the Irish Schools Track and Field in 2010, and is the first Irish Grand Prix meeting in 12 years to be broadcast on one of the 'big four' terrestrial channels, after the 2005 Cork City Sports.
