Another great day for BMOH juvenile club at the Clare Indoor Championships.
The Indoor championships held last weekend in Nenagh continue to show the great progress being made by the BMOH club with 6 individual winners on the day with a tally of 7 medals.
We had 4 athletes competing with the club for the first time and they all showed great promise for the future. (Emily, Molly, Helena and Padraig)
The club again competed in several different events and we are still achieving great success considering our limited training facilities. This year we had success in events like Shot Putt, Long Jump, Hurdles, Sprints and Walking.
With a total of 14 athletes participating on the day there was great achievements at all ages with everyone competing well. Congratulations to all those who participated and especially to all the medal winners.
List of Medal winners as follows (see pictures below)
Padraig Reddan 3rd 60m 10.15
Tom Forde 3rd 60m 9.58
Ian Collins 2nd Long Jump 3.58m

Darragh Toomey 2nd 60m Hurdles 10.42, 3rd 60m 8.92
Valerie O’Mahony 2nd Shot Putt 7.44m
We also had six 4th place finishes with Oisin (600m) and Matthew (600m) particularly unlucky not to get Bronze medals as their times were just less than a second away from achieving the medal. Josh was very close in 60m and 60m Hurdles finishing 4th in both. And we had two boys competing in the U12 Shot Putt for the first time with Tom achieving 4th and Ian 5th. Our other 4th was achieved by Valerie in the 60m.
