Day 1 of the National Indoor Championships took place on Sunday at Athlone IT.  There were many notable accomplishments from our GCH athletes with the club taking home 5 national medals and it was heartening to see that there were numerous personal best performances on the day.

Richard McGrath showed his class in the U12 Boys 60m sprint where he finished in the silver medal position after yet another great battle with Darragh Fahy from Loughrea.
