Galway Track & Field Championship Dangan 19th May 2013

Published in Club News on 19th May 2013

Well done to all our super Juvenile athletes who did Athenry AC proud in Dangan on Sunday 19 May in Day 2 of the Galway Juvenile T&F Championships U12-19s!

A provisional set of results can be obtained here.

The main image with this article is one of a deadheat for first in one of the sprint finals, which was confirmed by the electronic timing system which was used extensively during the day, ably manned by our own Iain Shaw and Michael O'Hart (Sligo AC).  The young GCH and Craughwell AC athletes could not be separated, even after very close analysis of the photo finish.

A record 9 clubs (Athenry, Craughwell, Loughrea, GCH, East Galway, South Galway, Corrib, Tuam, [and last but certainly not least) Ballinasloe & District) across the county competed and all took home at least one medal.  There were even representatives in from the new club centred in Carna in, who will be competing with us in 2014!

The Galway County Board would like to thank all the clubs for their support and patience throughout what was a very long day, starting at 11:02AM on Sunday morning and finishing well after 7PM that evening.  The Galway/Mayo game was far from our minds throughout the day itself!
