Irish International 400 meter hurdler and Sky Sports Ambassador Paul Byrne.Paul Byrne with 1A and 1B

Paul has represented Ireland at the European Senior Championships and as a training partner of Thomas Barr is himself hoping to run in the Olympic Games in 2020.

He spoke at length about how the skills he has learned from sport (commitment, adaptability, communication, overcoming ‘hurdles’, and persistence to name a few) are so transferable to everyday life.

He will also be working with the LCA class and hopefully helping to get their big project up and running — details to follow!
