Well done to Aisling who won three gold medals at the 2018 Special Olympics Ireland Finals. This event was held over four days and the track and field competition was held in Morton Stadium over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Aisling Maher had a busy three days competing for Team Munster in both the 100m and Turbo Javelin. Aisling qualified from her 100m heat on Friday and saw off her competitors on Sunday morning to take the gold medal in the 100m. Aisling had a busy weekend as she was also a crucial member of 4x100m Munster relay who saw off Leinster and the second Munster team to claiming gold. Aisling ran the third leg of the relay and the team ran a very fast 1.01 to claim the top podium position. As well as Aisling’s gold in the sprint events, Aisling also won the Turbo Javelin on Saturday. Well done Aisling for the great performance over the weekend!
