Gladys Cooper reports: Round 3 of the league was held in Tallaght yesterday morning on what turned out to be a lovely day weather wise , and to add to the enjoyment more great performances from our Clonliffe crew.
The morning got off to a great start, with a win by Emma McDonnell in the 400 metres. Emma`s club mates followed her lead with Second place 500m Sarah McDonnell , Second Place 400m Rebecca Fitzsimmons ,First 600m Jonathan Fitzsimmons, Second 600m Sally Sumola
All of the athletes who are competing in the leagues are trying to accumulate points and so far doing extremely well, in particular James McDonnell, Kieth Burke, Naoise Cullen and Holly Foy just to name but a few.
In particular it is a pleasure to see the sprinting section of our club competing with such enthusiasm and tenacity in no small part due to the newest member of our coaching staff Ray.
We also had young athletes in particular Alana, Ella, Dermot and Keven competing in the 1500m which is a difficult enough race at the best of times but they all did very well. A big Congratulations to all the athletes from their coaches.
