Ardee Sports Day 25/08/2013

Today we had 3 of the regulars running at Ardee : Caitlin, Olivia and Odhran. All ran very well in their sprints and long races amidst strong fields. Caitlin was pipped at the line in both the 100 and 800m U11. Olivia qualified from her heat in the 80m and finished 3rd in the final, securing a bronze medal. She ran a stong 200m finishing 2nd, also taking a silver medal. Odhrán ran a good 100m and finished in 3rd place. He started strongly in the 800m but faded a bit in the middle, however after a very strong finish he managed to pass 3 other athletes and finished 2nd.

Olivia’s sister Anna ran well in the U9s and both Caitlin’s brothers Oisin and Donal, and her sister Derbhla, ran well in their races. Last but not least, we had 2 representatives in the U6 race, Ursula and Méabh – Méabh waddled in last but was obstructed by an over anxious parent otherwise she may well have secured 2nd last place ……. and she is only 2 !! Ursula and Méabh could be 2 names for the future !! Watch this space!
