Race Report: Leinster Indoor Championships

February 22 2020 - NIA - Leinster Indoor Junior Championships

Another great day for Grainne O'Sullivan competing at the Leinster Junior Womens competition this Saturday. Grainne competed in the long jump where she came second jumping 5.01m, and the 60m where she set a fabulous new pb of 8.06secs to finish 7th in the final. Great results & huge congrats, Grainne!

February 23rd 2020 - NIA - Leinster Indoor Juvenile Relays 

Bray entered the biggest number of athletes to date in the very competitive Leinster Indoors Relays. All our teams did us very proud on Sunday against very stiff competition. The U13 girls team narrowly missed out on a place in the final but managed to improve their combined time from last year by 4 seconds. We can now build on the relay training and integrate it more into our training programmes going forward. Thanks to all the athletes and parents who made the event. Congratulations to all of you. 

Aoife Carter also competed yesterday in the U17 Leinster Indoor high jump. Aoife also faced stiff opposition and finished 7th in her age group but interestingly would have placed even higher in the U18 event. Lots more to come from Aoife! Well done!
