Cranford athletes Oisin Kelly and Teresa Mullen in action at the weekend.

 

Teresa Mullen travelled to Belfast at the weekend to compete in the Ni and Ulster Senior Track and Field competition held at the Mary Peters track. This was Teresa’s first entry into the senior long jump event and it was a good opportunity to gain valuable high level experience at this competition.  Teresa finished a respectable 11th place overall with a jump of 4.78m.  Teresa is capable of much more and we hope to see more of Teresa demonstrating her experience in the future.

 

Meanwhile another Cranford athlete was in action in France.  Oisin Kelly from Kilmacrennan was selected to represent Ireland at the European Athletics U18 championships held in Franconville, Oisin was up against the best in European with competitors from Belgium, France, Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland all selected to represent their countries in the 800m event.  Such a fabulous achievement to be selected and an honour to wear the Irish singlet coming from our humble roots here on the Donegal coast.  All our supporters were able to watch the live performance via youtube throughout Saturday. Oisin seemed relaxed on the start line running in lane 2 as he was introduced via the Tv screen. Oisin settled well into his confident running style and stayed with the pack until the French and Swiss runners made a break in the final lap Oisin was unable to see a way through the pack. Oisin performed well finishing with a time of 1.56.98.  The event was won by Frenchman Thomas MARQUES DE ANDR with a time of 1.53.12.  Oisin has much more to come and we are watching this space to see Oisin in action again soon.
