National Juvenile Games and Track & Field Championships Day 1
Congratulations to our three young athletes who travelled to Tullamore on Saturday for the National Track & Field Competitions. This was the first time for each of them to compete on such a huge stage and each gave it their all in the various competitions. Gerard Delaney threw 22.88 in the Boys U/12 Turbo Javelin to finish 9th overall – a tremendous achievement. In the Pairs event Lily Murphy and Meadhb Hall qualified in both the U/9 60mts and Long Jump competitions. In what were two extremely competitive events the Girls finished 4th in the Long Jump following two personal best performances of 3.40 and 3.39 respectively, missing out on a bronze medal by just 2 cms while in the 60mts they finished 5th, again just hundreds of a second from bronze. What a marvellous achievement for such young athletes. Thanks to the coaches and families for their support on the day.
