Day 2 Results
National Titles were hard to come by on Day 2, but it required a photo finish to decide the medals in two sprint events involving Newbridge Athletes. In the boys U/16 100m Luke Morris won silver with Kevin Kyne in 5th Spot, and Runo Ayavoro competing boys U/12 60m was also denied the gold on the line but captured a well deserved Silver. Meanwhile in the boys U/15 Javelin competition Jack McWey, still not recovered from a injury that curtailed his training showed signs that he is on the way back with a throw of 43.25 and finished with the Bronze medal, Mark Freeman also showed good form to finish in the top ten in this event. a great achievement for the Boys + Girls to get to this level and with Athletes of this calibre the future of the Club looks bright. TRAINING. AS AND FROM THIS THURSDAY 31st JULY, WE WILL TAKE A BREAK FROM TRAINING FOR A FEW WEEKS, IF ATHLETES NEED TO TRAIN FOR COMMUNITY GAMES PLEASE TALK TO COACHES.
