Assumpta's Euro Success

Published in Club News on 12th May 2014

Forget bearded ladies and no Irish entry in the Eurovision final over the weekend, Athenry AC were making a somewhat more successful competetive attempt at the World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation European Championship in Belfast.  Assumpta Feeney yet again powered her way to top spot in her weight category and now adds the title of 'Euopean Champion' to her achievements.  There is talk that Floyd has been dispatched to the shed to work on an extension to the trophy cabinet, and rightly so as we feel that there is plenty more to come from the Athenry AC powerhouse.  Assumpta will now put her focus firmly on the World champs later this year - wishing you all the best Assumpta.


Poor Floyd.  Don't think I'd be as quiet as he is! Was at the Euros for his 40th and I'll be in Germany for our anniversary.  I have a lot of making up to do after this or else I'll be the one in the shed!!

Thanks to everybody in Athenry AC - you all have been a wonderful support.  The World Championships are on 6th to 8th June and after that, I'll be back in training for Achill Roar in September!  See you all then xxx
