16 Nov 2010 By IPC

Preparations for London 2012 are well underway and on schedule for Irish Paralympic athletes and staff following the conclusion of the second Renault Ireland Team 2012 Training camp in Limerick, Ireland.

The camp which took place last weekend included an inspirational talk from Irish World Championship silver medallist, Olive Loughnane, in which she emphasized the necessity for each athlete and coach to leave no stone unturned as they prepare for London

Held at the University of Limerick, the camp - one of two held each year – saw athletes receive ongoing sports science, medical and coaching support as part of an agreed and planned training schedule.

Liam Harbison, Chief Executive Officer of the Paralympic Council of Ireland, wished all athletes in attendance luck with many of the qualifying events for London 2012 that are set to take place next year.

The next major competition for Irish Paralympic Athletes following the Renault Ireland Team 2012 training camp will be the IPC World Athletics Championships in New Zealand from the 21st- 30th January, 2011.
