National Juveniles set for Super Sunday live stream
The GloHealth National Juvenile Indoor Championships take place this weekend (21st and 22nd of March) in AIT International Arena, Athlone. There is a packed programme of events, which will see over 1,500 of Ireland’s young athletic talent take to the boards in Athlone. Day two of the championships will be streamed live via Athletics Ireland TV with commentary courtesy of Jumping the Gun.
U16 athlete Sommer Lecky (Finn Valley AC) has cleared 1.75m in the high jump which came at the British U17 championships in Sheffield on the 1st of March. Multi-eventer Elizabeth Morland (Cushinstown AC) will hone her high jumping skills as she starts as favourite in the U18 competition. Keith Marks (Cushinstown AC) tops the juvenile rankings with his 2.06m jump at the Leinster Juvenile Indoor Championships on the 7th of March.
Many of Ireland’s quickest underage sprinters will be on their marks as day two of the championships features the 60m sprints. Tallaght AC due Eoin Doherty and Joseph Ojemumi have dipped under seven seconds this year for the 60m. Both athletes will resume rivalry in the U19 60m in Athlone. Ciara Neville (Emerald AC) who ran a stunning 7.45 seconds for the 60m at the Irish Senior Championships in February goes in the U17 60m event on Sunday.
The longer 400m sprint is also on the programme where the likes of Jenna Bromell (Emerald AC) and Brian Masterson (Dundrum South Dublin AC) are tipped to go well. In the 1,500m watch out for the likes of Louise Shanahan (Leevale AC), Kevin McGrath (Bohermeen AC) and Jack O’Leary (Mullingar Harriers AC).
