Galligan extends club hammer record at AAI Games

So just like the number 16 bus having waited 35 years for a new club hammer record, Simon Galligan broke it again a few weeks later at Saturdays AAI Games with a huge 64.91 throw. That secured him 2nd place in the meet.

Also competing at the AAI games, although on Sunday, was Jayme Rossiter making a welcome return to the track finishing 2nd in the 3000 in 8.40.97. Greta Streimyte was 3rd in the 1500 in 4.34.83. Leah Bergin finished 4th in the 400 in 55.86 and Jenny Johnston 10th in the 800 (2.24.29).

In the decathlon competition spread over the 2 days Rolus Olusa took silver, although clearly only working his way back to fitness after injury he took maximum points in the 100 (11.05), the 110 hurdles (15.04) and the javelin (45.66), he had 2nd places in the shot (12.09), 400 (53.05), discus (33.19) and was 3rd in both the long jump (6.28) and high jump (1.85).
