Success for club athletes at Ulster/ANI Indoors in Magherafelt

Sat 08/ Sun 09 February 2014


The Ulster and Athletics Northern Ireland Championships at Meadowbank Indoor arena in Magherafelt was a happy hunting ground on Saturday/Sunday last for a large squad of club juvenile athletes. Many younger athletes experiencing competition for the first time and older more experienced competitors all performed with distinction and placed a large percentage in podium finish positions and personal best performances. Congratulations and well done to all and thanks to the groups of coaches that supported on both days.
