Leevale AC is proud to announce a shot putt master class weekend hosted at the club’s High-Performance Centre in Cork.
Malcolm Fenton will lead the weekend. Malcolm has been coaching the throws for 44 years. He is the former Event Group Lead for the throws at both British Athletics and England Athletics.
