Thomas Barr

In 2014, Thomas Barr was a semi-finalist at the 2014 European Championships in the 400m hurdles. 

Barr won gold in the 400m hurdles at the 2015 University Games (Summer Universiade) in Gwangju, South Korea with a time of 48.78 seconds.

On 15 August at the Olympics in Rio 2016, Barr finished second in his heat of the 400m hurdles in a season best time of 48.93. The following day he broke the Irish record and won his semi-final to qualify for the final in a time of 48.39. He finished fourth in the final, again breaking the Irish record with a time of 47.97.

Thomas is also famous for being the brother of our very own Rebecca Barr.

Look out for Thomas competing in world championships in August. Good luck!!

Rafael Nadal

Not much more you can say about the man from Manacor. An incredible feat to come back from written off by most and win a record 10th French Open title.

He is along with Roger Federer (also returned from the brink) one of the greatest tennis players to have played the great game. He is an avid fan of Real Madrid FC, so has had loads to celebrate over the last couple of weeks and just got a whole load better with his 2017 Roland Garros win.

Let’s hope we see both Rafa and Roger back and competing at the highest level for many more tournaments.
