FANTASTIC COME BACK FOR PADRAIG MOYNIHAN
Posted: 16/5/2016 -
What a great day West Muskerry A.C. had at the 2nd day of the County Championships. The sun shone and all the athletes were in great spirits and looking forward to taking part in the County Championships.
Padraig Moynihan made his come back after taking a year out for his exams and what a come back he made. He competed in the 200m and he had to battle hard down the last 100m but did just enough to be rewarded with the bronze medal. He then competed in the 100m where again in a very tight finish he was rewarded with the bronze medal and he was absolutely thrilled to win the Gold medal and be crowned County U 18 Long Jump Champion with a new personal best jump. He is now looking forward to the Munster Championships in June.
Caitlin Hurley competed in the Girls U 16 800m. The race started off slow with nobody willing to take the lead so Caitlin took it on and with 250m she had to battle hard but kept her compoure all the way home and was well deserving of the silver medal for her efforts in making it a race.
All the other athletes did extremely well and qualified from semi finals to get to the finals but on this occasion they were out of the medals. They were Aisling O` Sullivan, Roisin Carroll, Saorlaith Murphy, Eve Murphy, Eimear O` Sullivan, Lucia Duarte,Ciaran Fitzgerald, Eioin Hurley, Sinead Hurley, Beibhinn Moynihan, Benjamin Deady Cabrajas, James McCarthy, Eilish O Connell.
