The Irish team of Dan Earnshaw, Emily Rowe, Eoghan Whelan and Liam Cotter start their JWOC races with the Sprint on Sunday at Baia Mare in Romania. They have had three days training and acclimatisation for the events, the Middle Distance on Wednesday, the Long on Friday and the Relay on Saturday. There is also a mixed sprint relay on Tuesday which requires two men and two women so they can’t have a competitive run in that.
Dan, Eoghan and Liam have run at JWOC before but it is Emily’s first.
The team leader is another former-JWOC runner, Aidan McCullough.
