The FAI Want To See Megan Campbell's Long Throws In The Guinness Book Of Records

The FAI Want To See Megan Campbell's Long Throws In The Guinness Book Of Records
By Daniel Kelly

The Republic of Ireland began their qualification for the 2019 Women's World Cup win a win on Tuesday night.

Colin Bell's side made the short trip north to Lurgan, defeating Northern Ireland 2-0. Megan Campbell was the star of the show for the side, scoring a goal and causing an own-goal.

Both goals were a result of Campbell's throw-ins. Her long throws have become the team's most potent weapon.

The FAI released a montage of the Drogheda native in full flow, and are looking to see is she worthy of a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

The FAI even made contact with Guinness World Records to see if she holds the female record. Denmark's Thomas Gronnemark broke the record in 2010 with a throw of 51.33 metres.

It's not the first time an Irish international has used the tactic. Rory Delap's long throw became his trademark after Stoke's promotion to the Premier League.

With the 2018 edition already published, if Campbell was to set the record it would be in the 2019 edition at the very earliest.
