ATHLETICS: EIGHT NEW COUNTY RECORDS SET THIS SEASON

first_imgATHLETICS: Donegal athletics is on the rise. As we get more coaches qualified and better equipment and infrastructure at club level this has only increased the desire of our younger athletes to want to represent their country. For our senior athletes to try and keep ahead of the chasing pack which in turn leads to our County records changing on a yearly basis.We have had someone from Donegal at every international competition this year should it have been competing or managing a team which is a great testament to our county. This year we have 8 new County records which are as followsBRENDAN BOYCE; Brendan went to the Worlds and got two new Pb’s this year with the walks in the 10000M (41.16.25) and the 50 km (3hr48min55sec)JOHN KELLY; John had another great season with the shot and his new County record now stands at 15.97m.DEMPSEY Mc GUIGAN; Dempsey has went from strength to strength and has thrown the hammer out to 66.90M JANINE BOYLE; Janine had a great season and her new County record of 11.92 Secs for the 100M puts her among the best in the country.KATE Mc GOWAN; Kate has been knocking on the door for the last couple of years and it shows that hard work and dedication pays off and her new 400M Hurdle record is 60.67 Secs.MARY Mc LOONE; Mary showed again what a fine athlete she is with her new Triple Jump record of 12.81M in Bilbao earlier on this year.NAOIMH Mc GRANAGHAN; Naoimh got her new Hammer record of 38.37M at the national League this year.So once again plenty of new records and to put it in perspective over the last 3 years there has been 23 new County records and with our younger athletes competing near and far hopefully we will see a lot more.
