STRABANE athlete Ann Marie McGlynn took part in one of the world’s biggest 5k races in Dublin Sunday past as part of the St Patricks day celebrations and lifted the bronze medal, behind race winner European Champion Finnola Britton and world silver medallist Catrina McKieran.

The Lifford A.C.flyer was only three seconds off the silver position in a new personal best of 16min 01secs in what was a testing course with lots of turns and strong winds.
