Liam O’Brien (24) will be Ireland’s sole entrant at next week’s ISU World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Seoul, South Korea (10-12 March).
O’Brien will not have too far to travel to the event as he trains in Seongnam City, within commuting distance from the Korean capital.
“I am excited to be representing Ireland at my third World Championships,” O’Brien said. “It feels a little different with Worlds being held only an hour away from my training base. I hope to build on my performance throughout the season and finish the season strong.”
Sean McAnuff has been selected as alternate for the championships which will be streamed live on the Skating ISU YouTube channel.
