Silver lining at National Junior & U/23 Indoor C`ships

Athlone was once again the venue today for another National Indoor Championship as the Junior and U/23 athletes took to the boards. There was only a small number of Clonliffe athletes in action and at the end of a long day three silver and one bronze was the total haul for the black and amber. National senior 60m champion Keith Pike was 2nd in the U/23 60m in 7.09, having earlier won his heat in 7.17, with Paul Whelan taking 3rd in 7.16. Andrew Jenkinson had a good run in the U/23 800 also taking silver after a 1.57.87 four lapper. Finally Ryan Cleary, who mid week ran the West Leinster Schools cross country, was back in his favoured event the Walk, Ryan taking Junior 3,000 race walk silver (14.07.51)
