Eileen finishes 11th in Commonwealth TT!

10 April 2018

BRC's Eileen Burns competed in her second event, at the Commonwealth Games this morning, the Women's Individual Time Trial. She finished 11th overall, a fantastic achievement! The Time Trial was run over a 26km course, which included a very steep climb. Eileen completed the course in a time of 40mins 21 secs, just over 5 minutes behind the winner, and Commonwealth Champion Katrin Garfoot, from Australia. 

 

After the event, Eileen said 'All the support has been brilliant and I appreciate it so much....gutted a bit that I missed out on the top 10. But sure we are never happy'. Eileen's husband Jason, father-in-law Jim and other family members were there to cheer her on.

 
BRC are so proud of you Eileen! What a brilliant result.
 
Eileen's final event, the Women's Road Race takes place this Saturday.
