    Ciaran has qualified for the final of the Euro Junior 800m. He ran 1:49.96 in the semi to make it as a fastest loser. Chammers was run out of it in his - 1:52 ish.

    Eoin Leen failed to qualify for the final of the Shot by 5 cm. With only 3 throws allowed Leen had his furthest throw in round 3 - 17.48 ( 17.53 made it )

  • Irish Runner claims that Eoin Leen broke the Junior record. See article Euro Junior Report. Not sure if this is accurate as I believe Victor Costello's record was a 16# record

    Anybody know for sure?

  • Apparently Costello's throw was with the 6.25kg and is still a few cm's further than's Leen's 6.00kg.

    I think Sean Naughton is working on the verification of Costello's record. Interesting to watch this one.

    Hope that helps.




  • They're way behind the times, Eoin threw 17.7something with a 6kg in the Munster Juniors in Castleisland. I don't know what the 6.25 record was but Eoin broke Victors 16lb record months ago with a 16.66 in the National Indoors. Victor being the guy he is actually wrote to Eoin to congratulate him. Pity we lost him as a thrower but I think he's probably the most explosive player on the Irish team, plus there's alot more money there than in throwing.
