National Relay Championships

It’s hard to beat the buzz of the National Relay Championships and this weekend in Athlone was no exception.  With just six lanes indoors,  making the final is a significant achievement.  All our athletes performed above and beyond expectations and the club is hugely proud of everyone who lined out on the day. The Club is very grateful to the subs who travelled up and supported their team mates.

Our athletes  took home a national title and two silvers on the day.
