Top Athletics At Leevale 2017 T&F

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Leevale AC, so the club commissioned commemorative medals for the 2017 T&F meet. There was a high standard of competition across all events with athletes travelling from all over the country, none further than Brendan O’Donnell from Lifford Srabane who competed in the junior men’s hammer. Brendan is seeking the standard for the European Junior Championships, and the long journey paid dividends when he threw a 67.20m B standard.

Miriam Daly of Carrick-on-Suir AC is also hoping to compete at the European Junior Championships, and achieving an A standard 61.79 in the women’s 400m hurdles puts her in the picture for selection.  

Joan Healy of Bandon AC had a great day at office winning both the women’s 100m & 200m races.  

The Bernard Walley trophy for the 100m went to Robert Bennett of Nenagh Olympic who won the event in 11.04 from Leevale’s Colin Doyle and Conor Morey. Robert made it a double when he won the 200m in a PB of 21.86.  

The 3000m Liam Horgan preputial trophy was won by Jack Corbett of Templemore AC in a time of 8:49.66.   

There were several athletes in consideration for athlete of the meet, including Joan Healy and Robert Bennett, however Shona Heaslip’s performance in the wonen’s 3000m, and comprehensive winning of the race in an impressive time of 9:22.99 gave her the award.

  • Thanks. I’ve confirmed that two of the athletes in the youths event were throwing 800g and have updated the results accordingly.

  • Brian – unfortunately, there was a fault with the photo finish equipement that affected the results of some of the earlier track races, specifically the walks, heat 2 of the women’s 100m and the women’s 400mH. We currently don’t have times available for most of the finishers in these events. The time for the winner of the women’s 400mH is correct and all the placings in the results are correct also.

  • Mike – apologies, one of the versions of the results I posted was missing the field events. The results posted now should be complete. Let me know if anything else is missing

  • Ladies 400m Hurdles is incorrect for positions 2-5. All show at 1:10:00. Can you update with the correct results. Thanks
