Men’s 640kg results
Fourth: Basque Country
A disappointing championship from an Irish point of view reached it’s conclusion yesterday in Madison with a 6th place finish in the men’s 640kg. The Switzerland national team based around the invincible Ebersecken and Ebgelberg clubs won the gold at 640kg claiming six gold medals winning all six senior men competitions. With Ebersecken also winning this year’s GENSB Games the Swiss look set to dominate the sport for year’s to come. There is a bit of soul searching to be done by the new Irish management set-up but nonetheless it was a gutsy performance overall by the small Irish panel who travelled and competed in difficult conditions. We wish everyone a safe trip home.
