Tallaght Athletes Add to recent National Medal Haul


Tallaght athletes added to the recent haul of National medals at the final day of the National Juvenile Track & Field Championships in Tullamore last Sunday where Aidan Darcy recorded a new personal best time of 22.94 when winning silver in the U17 200m and Jennifer Mc Adams made up for the disappointment of finishing 4th in the 3000m the previous week when she won bronze in the 1500m with a new personal best time and club record of 4.48.8. Saoirse Reihill added another silver in the U19 javelin final.

Lauryn Mc Dermott and Moses Ikpefua both did very well to qualify for their respective U16 and U15 200m finals in which both finished 7th with times of 27.23 and 26.85.

The previous day at the SIAB Track and Field International in Santry Stadium Rhasidat Adeleke representing the Irish Schools selection was again in top form when recording a new personal best time and another club record of 24.39 to win silver behind England’s Kiah Dubarry-Gay and later in the day she combined with three other Irish athletes to win the 4 X100m relay title.

She will be departing on Tuesday to represent Ireland in the European Youth Olympics in Gyor, Hungary from July 24th to 29th.

Our men’s track and field team will be looking forward to competing in Round 2 of the National League on Sunday 30th.
