Ulrik Nyberg reports: The last of this year’s four Dublin Juvenile T&F League meetings took place on today in Tallaght under a blue sky. It was great to see such a large group of young Clonliffe athletes take part and do well in the running, throwing and jumping. The league really provides a great opportunity to try the many different events open to U10-U16s. It is also an important part of the preparations for those who are going to take part in the upcoming Dublin Juvenile T&F Championships.
Our youngsters produced many fine results and several of our athletes strengthened their positions in the league tables. Here are some of the highlights:
Girls U16 – Emma McDonnell, 200m 1st, 1 000 m 2nd
Girls U15 – Sally Somula, 200 m 1st
Boys U 15 – Keith Burke, Shot putt 3rd
Boys U14 – Jonathan Fitzsimons, 200 m 1st, 1 000 m 1st
Boys U 13 _ Christian Finn, 200m 3rd, High Jump 3rd (pb: 1.35m)
Girls U12 – Ava Usanova, 200 m 1st, High jump 2nd (PB, 1 m 30 cm)
