Carol Walsh: No Limitations For Veteran Runner

NICOSIA, 4 June 2009 - Malta's long distance runner Carol Walsh showed no signs of aging at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe as the 47-year-old finished at a remarkable third in the 10,000m to pick up the bronze medal.

It was a breathtaking achievement for the aging runner, who was born 24 October 1963, who picked up her 12th medal in her ninth appearance at the Games.

Walsh’s success was the highlight of the Malta Independent’s edition in which the daily newspaper ran a story saying “Carol Walsh was a hero in the athletics squad”. Speaking to the paper, Walsh said, “Considering the limitations I had to contend with for my training, I must say I am very satisfied with this bronze medal. It was a tight race with the first three bunched together right from the start."

Walsh went to say that retirement was far from her mind and that a 49-year-old Carol Walsh could very well be seen running for Malta at Liechtenstein 2011.
