Athletics

 

On Thursday 30th May, 32 of the schools most talented athletes headed off to the Morton Stadium in Santry to compete in the Cumann na mBunscoil Athletics competition. All the children had trained very hard for this event over the last 2 months and on the day they all ran to the best of their ability. 8 children ran individual sprints and Athaliah Fubara was the outstanding sprinter, reaching the final of the girls’ u12 80m sprint where she finished in a highly creditable 6th place. The competition was particularly high this year and our other sprinters can be very proud of their performances.

8 relay teams competed in the 4x100m relays and the boys’ u11 team had the performance of the day by winning their heat and fighting to a brilliant bronze medal position in the final. The team of Liam Jenkins, Jake Andrews-French, Kyle O’Reilly and Alex Watson is an excellent team and indeed brought home medals in the same event last year at u10 level. Our u10 boys, u10 girls and u11 girls missed reaching their finals by only 1 place. Better luck next year!

A big well done and congratulations is due to all of our teams. And thank-you to everyone all for the effort you put into the training sessions. We want to acknowledge the hard work put in by the subs for each team, they did all the training but unfortunately did not make the final teams. They did however contribute hugely to the team effort.
