Sprint Relay Gold at All-Ireland Juveniles

Conor Caulfield

Athenry AC's under-age athletes had further outstanding success at the second weekend of the All-Ireland Indoor Championships this past weekend, the highlight of which was an incredible gold medal in the U16 boys 4 x 200 metre relay. Conor Caulfield had the honour of anchoring the team across the finish line in a superb win for a great squad of teenage sprinters. Conor Kindregan ran a storming opening leg, Kevin Madden took the baton on the second leg, Cathal Kelly maintained momentum on the third leg while Conor Caulfield brought the team home. The team shaved an astonishing 6 seconds off their early season performances.

Weblink of The Week


This week's contribution comes from Philip Magnier. I don't think there's a runner amongst us who stretches as much as we should and so I suppose it's important to get the best out of whetever time we do devote to this activity. Philip is a big fan of AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) as proscribed by Gerard Hartmann.
