Isaac Vickers competed in the U10 60m, after a good showing in the heat and semi final he was a very close 3rd in the final. He backed that up only 25 minutes later in the 300m final and placed 3rd against very strong opposition. 
Finally Cian Spillane ran in the U15 800m, after starting very wide he made great headway to be in the first 3 for the first lap. On the last lap he stayed with the leader and ran a very strong 2nd.
