Cathal Lombard who briefly held the Irish 10,000 record a few years ago, after improving from 30:00 to 27:30 (and 14:30 to 13:18) returned to competition recently with a fine run in the Alsager 5 miles road race in England, running in the 24 minutes range.
It is good to see him back, and Lombard promises to reach a high level without the use of EPO or other illicit products.
The man has served his time, repented, and now he is ready to prove what a good runner he can be, naturally. Kudos to him.
