Hooray for our Juveniles – The 1st Competition of 2021

???????????? Day 1 & 2 of the Louth Juvenile Track & Field Championships got underway this weekend and a huge Thank You to Athletics Louth for a super organised event. ❤️❤️❤️ Competing for the last time as a Juvenile and for the last time along side her sisters was Aoibheann Carolan. Aoibheann hit the podium in all her events this weekend taking Gold in the U19 Shot Putt, silver in a very exciting photo finish 100m race and the bronze in both the Long Jump and 200m. Well done Aoibheann you are an all round athlete and inspiration to our younger members, we’ll miss at this event but wish you every success in the Juniors next year. ❤️❤️ Her sisters, Órlaith and Caoimhe also hit the podium; Órlaith in great throwing form came 1st in both the U17 Shot Putt and Javelin, 3rd in the 200m and 4th in the 100m. Caoimhe too came away happy with her gold in the U13 Javelin and silver in the Hurdles. Well done ladies. ❤️ It was certainly a successful throwing weekend for all 5 of our athletes not least Kya Mothiram coming 1st on Day 1 in the U16 Javelin and 1st again on Day 2 in the Shot Putt with a New Championship Record throw of 11.33 meters. Super throwing Kya, well done. ???? ‘Blessed amongst women’ was Charlie Sands who surprised and delighted hitting the podium on both days coming 1st in the U15 Javelin and 1st again on Day 2 in a super fast 200m race and boy was he fast out of the blocks. Well done Charlie .???? A special mention too and thank you to our coach Peter Carolan who put them through a thorough warm up both mornings. ???????????? Well done to our athletes, we are delighted for you all and the best of luck to our members competing on Day 3 next Sunday (Day 4 to be confirmed). Ardee & District AC.
