Denis continues to shine at the GLO Health AAI Juvenile Club Championships

Comments Off Uncategorized

Denis Gilevskiy continued his outstanding form at the Glo Haelth All Ireland Championships with a fine set of races to take the Boys U12 60m Title. Following on from his CBP Performance last week over the 600m, Denis was equally impressive over the shorter distance and at the time of posting this report we were yet to get official results on the possibility of another record. Congrats to Denis on an outstanding few weeks.

Doug Walshe acquitted himself with distinction against strong competition in the Boys U12 Turbo Javelin whilst Emma O’Brien missed out by the narrowest of margins on a podium finish in the girls U13 80m. Well done to both Emma & Doug on great performances.

Sarah Healy took a silver medal in the girls U15 1500m rounding off another very successful campaign and AmyRose Farrell (Girls U16) was involved in a battle all the way down the finishing strait where she also had to settle for second place in what was another great year for her.

Well done to all the athletes involved over the last two days.

Denis takes first National title (with new CBP) at Tullamore with Lara & AmyRose taking second place finishes (PHOTOS added)

Comments Off Uncategorized

Day 1 of the 2015 National Juvenile T&F Finals brought some great performances from our athletes in Tullamore Harriers AC. Given the large numbers competing it was true Championship running with heats in the U14 + older age groups for the first time in a long while.

A big congratulations to Denis Gilevskiy who took a convincing victory in the boys U12 600m with a new Championship Best Performance. The multi talented Gilevskiy was in total control storming away from the main pack with 200m to go in a very impressive time. Well done to Denis who was a very popular winner. It was his first taste of competition at this level and what a way to announce his arrival !!.

Lara Gilespie (U15) and AmyRose Farrell (U16) were equally impressive in taking silver medals in their respective 800m races. Both girls took control of their heats and were involved in exciting finishes in their finals. A great set of runs bearing in mind the very short turn around between the races. The girls can be very satisfied with their performances. Well done to both of them.

Pappy Tucker was in total control of his heat (U14 boys|) and with 300m to go in the final he was in pole position but unfortunately had to pull out after felling unwell. Rotten luck for Pappy.

Earlier in the day both Natasha Rolland and Lucy Schwer performed very well in the TJ and HJ gaining lots of experience along the way whilst Cara Brady had a fine 6th place finish in a recent Combined Events competition. Well done to all three girls.
