The weather was kind to Leevale 2014, after a night of rain & strong winds the sun shone for Day 2 of T&F meet. Once again the juvenile athletes turned out in force for a great day’s competition, with multiple heats and semi-finals required for many of the sprint races.
There was some fantastic young talent on show across all the disciplines, sprint, middle distance, high jump, long jump, turbo javelin & shot putt.
World champion, Derval O’Rourke was on hand to watch and encourage the young hurdlers of the future. Derval presented the winners of all hurdle races with their trophies making this an extra special occasion for the young athletes.
The juvenile athlete of the meet went to Daniel Ryan from Moycarkey Coolcroo. Daniel won the BU16 100m hurdles & high jump and was second in the 100m. He also was placed second in the BU17 long jump.
