The rescheduled National Masters Indoors Track & Field Championships took place at Athlone AIT Arena (Saturday March 10). It’s a busy all day timetable with exciting and keen competition and a great experience.
We had nine masters competing in five different age categories. They competed in twenty-three events – on track and field and came home with a wonderful total haul of twelve individual medals.
Once again Mags Glavey and Pauline Moran spearheaded this success with three golds each – a fantastic achievement. Colette Tuohy added two silver to her collection and all three added to their national cross country achievements. Ann Murray won bronze and in the field events Martin Peyton and Patrick Moran (2) won bronze. Congratulations to all our medal winners and well done to all our competitors.
