Wrap-up of National Juvenile Track & Field

Craughwell AC - 21 August, 2014 - 11:40

Sineád Treacy and Conor Duggan at the Celtic Games International in Santry

A belated report on the ‘almost final’ juvenile track & field action of the summer. Seven more National track & field medals made their way to the club on the final weekend of the National juvenile championships in Tullamore.

Sineád Treacy was the star performer with double silver in the U18 girls’ long jump (5.22m) and 200m (25.21s) while Conor Duggan added bronze in the U18 Men’s 200m in 22.65. Their performances earned both Sineád and Conor selection for the Irish team that contested the Celtic Games international in Santry recently against Scotland and Wales. It’s been a really fantastic year for both athletes with both featuring on the National podium multiple times, Sineád getting selected for 3 internationals and Conor making his international debut. Sineád’s achievements were magnified by the honour of captaining the Irish Schools team at the Celtic Games. The athletic club is immensely proud of both athletes. Both acquitted themselves very well at the international with Sineád placing 3rd in the U18 Girls 200m in a time of 25.47 and helping the 4x100m team to relay silver in a time of 47.12, while Conor helped the U18 boys’ team to relay silver in a time of 42.89 as well as taking first place in the invitational 100m.

Tuam AC Notes 11/8/2014

Tuam AC - 11 August, 2014 - 22:50

Conditions were absolutely perfect for the 29th edition of the World famous Streets of Galway 8km Road Race on Saturday evening. Athletes travel from all over the World to take part in this race and it is now ranked amongst the top 100 road races in the world and is nearly as good as the Tuam 8k which will take place on Sunday 18th January 2015 so plenty of time to prepare. All of the usual suspects were in Galway and there was a record entry of 2700 competitors and the event sold out almost two weeks before race day. Tuam AC was definitely one of the best represented clubs in attendance and the green T-Shirts and Singlets with the broken wheel symbol were very noticeable at the finish line in South Park. It was particularly satisfying to see a huge number of new Tuam AC members taking part and somewhere in the region of 30 members were in attendance. Tuam AC had three big prize winners on the night with Tommy Joe Whyte taking the M50 prize, Claire Rowe winning F40 just 5 days after winning the Garrafrauns to Dunmore road race and the one and only Roger Rushe who took the M75 title and received the biggest cheer of the night at the prize giving ceremony. Our new members included Aidan Doyle, Eamon Niland, Tommy Varden, Elio Fusciardi and Justin Lane who was completing an incredible treble of races in only 6 days. He took part in the Loughrea tri-athlon last Sunday followed by Garrafrauns to Dunmore on Monday and flew around Galway on Saturday evening, an incredible weeks work. We also had a huge contingent of lady runners including Aine Doherty, Olivia O’Grady, Philomena Koller, Niamh Feeney, Maeve Kilroy, Julianna Collins, Deniece Williams and Lorraine Lee. They were all superb and did themselves and Tuam proud and numerous personal bests were recorded in the race as an added bonus. There were many more Tuam AC members taking part but they passed the finish line to fast for the naked eye and certainly to fast for any amateur photographer but don’t worry the sophisticated finish line technology captured all of the results in split second timing and they are all available to be viewed, digested and enjoyed at www.galwaycityharriers.com The next big local race and definitely not to be missed is the Claregalway 10k Race on Saturday 23rd August at 6pm. This great race incorporates the Galway County 10k Championships and is ran on a fast flat pb friendly course. Enter online to avoid disappointment at www.runireland.com
