    Eric Speakman of New Zealand has been confirmed for the mile event in the Letterkenny International on Saturday 2nd July. Speakman is fresh off the American and Canadian circuit, having ran a lifetime best of 3:37.44 just a few weeks ago in Windsor. The Stony Brook scholarship graduate smashed the 4 minute mile back in January with 3:57.30. Since then, he has been edging closer to Olympic qualification. With such a star studded field lined up for the Letterkenny meeting and a 1500m time clock being in place, Speakman may just get that chance and book his ticket to Rio.
