first_imgMilford man Brendan Boyce may not have finished in the medals at the Olympics today but he did Donegal and Ireland proud.The 50k walker smashed his personal best time by more than two minutes to cross the line in a time of 3.55.01.Brendan finished 29th overall and it will provide a great platform for his next appearance in the Olympics – hopefully in Brazil in four years time. The pace was set from a very early stage in what looked like blistering heat around the streets of London.Brendan’s team-mate Rob Heffernan, who recorded a new national record, finished a terrific fourth place just outside the medals.Brendan is expected to come home to Donegal where he is expected to receive a huge welcome.“I was delighted with how I did; I mean I smashed my personal record and finished in the top 30, so I’ve got to be very happy with that,” said the Milford man. Well done Brendan – you did us all proud. BRENDAN SMASHES HIS PERSONAL BEST AS HE DOES DONEGAL AND IRELAND PROUD was last modified: August 12th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:50K WalkBrendan BoyceMilfordOlympicslast_img read more
