GCH at the World Master Indoor Championship

GCH had two representatives at the recent World Master Indoor Championships in Torun. A great week for Sean Breathnach who took gold for Ireland in the m40 Discus on Thursday last with a season’s best throw of 48.26. The Tuesday previous, Sean took silver in the v40 shot putt with a throw of 17.12, not too far off the winner Andy Dittmer's throw of 17.32. Terrific performance as always from Sean, even more so given his limited training and competition throwing over the past six months.
