ST. BRENDAN'S ATHLETIC CLUB: Munster Senior and Masters Indoor Championships took place on Sunday, 15 January in Nenagh Indoor track. St. Brendan's AC had 2 athletes in Masters categories: Ursula Barrett in O40 competing in Long Jump and 200m sprint and Artur Nowak in O45 competing in Shot Putt, Weight for Distance and High Jump. Ursula's first event on the day was long jump and after winning this competition last year, setting a new Munster record in Long Jump in O35 category, she didn't disappoint this year and won gold again comfortably. She followed this up with a great performance in 200m, setting new Munster record for O40 category and collecting a second gold medal on the day. Artur started the day with Shot Putt, finishing second in O45 category. It was much better in the next 2 events where he won gold medals in Weight For Distance (56lbs) and another in High Jump, making this 4th year in a row. It was a great day of competition and solid performance from St.Brendan's AC athletes, getting medal from each event they were competing in.
St.Brendan's AC also had 8 juvenile members competing in pentathlon in different age categories over two days on 7th and 8th of January. On the Saturday St.Brendan's AC had sisters, Daisy (U14) and Lilly (U12) Nowak competed in 5 events on the day as the only girls from Kerry. Daisy's events included : 60m hurdles, Long Jump, Shot Putt, High Jump and 800m and Lilly competed in 60m sprint, Long Jump, High Jump, Shot Putt and 600m run.
