STUNNING DISPLAYS BY FVAC ATHLETES SOMMER AND JOHN

first_imgTWO FINN Valley AC athletes have put in stunning performances in England.Sheffield was the venue for the U15/U17/U20 English Championships and two Finn Valley athletes did so well.First it was Sommer Lecky going into these champs with a pb of 1.71 from the Scotttish Championships and needing 1.75 to gain a European Youth Olympic Q mark and as it turned out a medal. It was a first attempt at this new height, and finished joint second in the U17 event.A marvellous return for the young Castlederg girl, a student at Strabane Grammar and coached by Niall Wilkinson.This performance by Sommer is a Q mark as stated for EYOF Tbilisi, Georgia and puts in her in the frame for consideration for selection .No sooner had those back at Valley just finishing a training session had time to take it in that news came of a 17.44 m throw by John Kelly good enough to nail the title to add to Irish and Scottish won in recent weeks. John needs 17.95 twice to Q for this years European champs and as they say he certainly should hit that early Summer and book his flight . John now prepares to travel to Canaries to link with Icelandic squad to further prepare and learn . From St Johnston, he is a student at Lyit and coached by his father.STUNNING DISPLAYS BY FVAC ATHLETES SOMMER AND JOHN was last modified: March 1st, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Finn Valley ACSheffieldSommer Leckylast_img
