Kieran said after his win today: “It was absolutely brilliant, I am delighted with the result and proud of my two Gold medals at my first ever Transplant Games. I thank my donor for giving me the chance to compete here in Krakow.”

On Sunday Kieran, a newcomer to Transplant Team Ireland, got off to a great start on the first day of the European Transplant and Dialysis Games in Krakow by securing a Gold in the 5km race.
Kieran was delighted with his success and said: “My time is a personal best for me. I exceeded my own expectations.”
