MUNSTER MASTER’S INDOORS 2016: A very successful Sunday for the two St. Brendan’s athletes who competed in Nenagh on 17th January. Firstly congratulations to Ursula Barrett who broke the indoor record for the long jump masters O35 competition by 25cm, which was ten years old!! The jump was recorded at 4m 62cm. What a fantastic achievement for this master athlete who was competing in her first indoor competition & what a win especially at Munster level. It wasn’t the only medal Ursula brought home on Sunday, she also won the 200m event & placed 2nd in the 60m too. What an exciting start to 2016 for Ursula, can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring for her. Artur Nowak who is starting out with a very good 2016 also competed on Sunday. He brought home four medals to add to his already extensive collection! After waiting all day for the last event of the day Artur won the high jump competition. He placed 2nd in both the long jump & weight for distance with a 3rd place position in the shot. A great beginning to 2016 for St. Brendan’s Athletic Club, here’s looking forward to the year ahead!
