Rachel Bowler with her silver medal.

Day 3 of the Irish Life Health National Indoor Juvenile Championships took place in Athlone last Saturday and it proved to be a thrilling event with national records and surprise wins from some of the nations up and coming under age athletes.

Rachel Bowler was competing in the U19 Triple Jump. After last weekend’s Silver in the Long jump, she was hopeful of another medal. The competition started well for Rachel, but following her fourth jump she resigned from the competition following an injury to her ankle but her opening jumps and class in this event earned her the silver medal. We wish Rachel well in her recovery.
Orla O’Reilly was back in action again this week in the U18 200m. Orla earned a new pb in the 60m last weekend and she had her mind set on a pb of 26.99 for this event. Orla missed out on a place in the final by 0.03secs and having run a time of 26.36 well below her estimated time. Well done Orla
Cillian Griffin also returned to Athlone this weekend. After two 4th placings last weekend in the 60m and Long Jump, and the 200m being his least favoured event he was hoping to get a good time. Cillian was outside the medals after making it to the final 6 in the U16 200m having set a new pb in the heats in a time of 24.19 taking over a second off his past time.

Best of luck to all club athletes who are taking part in the Kerry Colleges Track and Field Championship in Castleisland on Thursday 6th. If any parents are free on the day and want to come out and help with the running of the event the organisers would be very grateful.

The Club would like to offer its sincere sympathy to coach Gina Barrett and her family on the sudden passing of her brother Gerry Clifford RIP.

No training on Tuesday as a mark of respect.
