Disappointment for Ireland at World Games

Things did not go to plan today for the Irish team in the sweltering heat in Taiwan for the men’s 640kilo competition. The competition emphasised the fact that the 640kilo is the most fiercely contested event in World Tug of War and when things do not go your way there is no place to hide. The Irish team was, Joey Kehoe, Oliver Kehoe, Laurance Kehoe, Gerard Ferguson, Donal Conroy, Shay Ryan, James Kehoe and Sean Roberts.

Full results were, Gold: Switzerland, Silver: Germany, Bronze: Netherlands, Fourth: Great Britain, Fifth: Sweden, Sixth: Ireland.
