MORTON Stadium hosted the blue riband track and field event, the National championships over the weekend. Zoe Browne and Isuelt O'Donnell won individual medals as did Stuart Green. The men's 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relay teams also medalled as did the men's 10,000 squad. Congratulations to all who competed.

Zoe Brown was our first medallist of the championship, placing second in the Ladies Vault with 4.10.

In the 10,000m, the men won the team event. The team scorers were Mick Clohisey, 6th in 31:07.74; Simon Ryan, 9th in 31:38.82 and Simon Reede, 13th in 32:36.56. Brian Leahy placed 14th in 32:43.17

Our senior men’s  4x 100m were 2nd in 45.34. The team was Sean O’Driscoll, Luc Bellintani, Dylan Archbold and  Mick Hynes.

On Sunday, Stuart Green came back to the podium after a break of a few years to place 3rd in the Men’s Vault, clearing 4.45m. While he will be pleased overall, he will feel a bit disappointed at missing the 4.55 mark where he was way above it, but knocked in on the way down.

Isuelt O’Donnell won her first senior medal by running a very gutsy race to win bronze in a time of 2:09.38

The 4 x 400m men finished off the championships by winning bronze. Team consisted of Jamie Davis, Daire Bermingham, Cillian Kirwan and Kieran Kelly
