It was a weekend of success yet again for our juveniles in Athlone at the National Indoor Champs bringing the indoor season to a close.

Two medals made their way to Raheny. Jack Dowley U16 jumped a PB of 11.06m in the triple jump to win gold.

Davyd Konovalov raced a superb PB of 23.84 seconds to win his heat and gain a place in the final of the 200m where he went on to win bronze. Konovalov also placed sixth in the 60m with another PB of 7.39 seconds.

In the u14 60m Ariana Butler ran a PB of 8.25 seconds in the final to place sixth. In the U15 60m Rachel Afari raced a PB in the heats of 8.07 seconds and went onto take sixth place in her final.

In the U18 Abena Afari raced into both the 60m and 200m finals smashing her PBs and narrowly missing a medal in the 60m. In the U17 Isabel Twomey ran two superb PBs in the 60m and 200m just outside finals qualification
