GloHealth National Master Indoor T&F Championships 2016

The GloHealth National Master Indoor Track & Field Championships were held on Sunday 20th March 2016 in AIT Arena, Athlone. Ranging in ages from over 35 right up to over 90, competition was high for national medals.
Jim O'Shea was back in action following his great performance at the British Masters last week. Jim was first in the Long Jump (3.89m) & High Jump. He was third in the 60m Sprint (9.62 sec). 
Sean O'Shea was second in the Shot, 10.81m. 
Michael O'Connor won gold in the 3000m Race Walk in a time of 16:21.89. This sets Michael up well when he competes at the European Championships in a couple of weeks. We wish him the best of luck. 
Jerome Foley ran a great race to finish in third at the 800m O50 race. He was just two tenths of a second behind the silver medalist in a time of 2:16.63. 
Well done to you all, some great performances.
