      Isabelle Doyle top of the podium in Athlone!

Dublin and the East coast woke up to a heavy snow fall on the morning of the Nationals in the AIT.  That factor didn't stop our merry band of athletes making the journey to Athlone. Great results were achieved by our young guns.....
First up was Isabelle Doyle in Under 17 Girls  Long Jump with a best jump of 5.11m, Isabelle won gold and became National Champion!
Next up was the sprinters!  Daniel Chukwu was our representative in U14 Boys 60m, Daniel 2nd 8:16 in his heat  made it through.  A quicker time in the final  of 8:09 placed Daniel in 6th place.  Girls U15 60m saw Sophia Hyland just missing out in 3rd place in a time of 8:47. Fortune Chukwu qualified to U16 Girls 60m Final, finishing 3rd 7.98 in the fastest of the three heats.  In the final, Fortune ran 7.93  to finish third and earn a well deserved bronze National medal! Fresh after her success in the Long Jump, Isabelle Doyle ran 8.01 into 2nd place and a place in the Under 17 Girls 60m Final.  A gallant showing in a highly competitive field , Isabelle came 6th in a time of 8:04.
Well done to all our athletes on their super performances,  roll on next week!
