Tipperary Athletes Shine At The National Master’s Indoor Athletic’s Championships

The National Master’s Indoor Athletic’s Championships were held in AIT, Athlone, on 20th. march last. As usual, Tipperary athletes shone on the day & many top class performances were recorded over a wide spectrum of events.

Pat Naughton took home another five gold medals, which now brings his tally to 301 National medals over a most successful athletics career. Pat continues to train regularly in the stadium in Nenagh where he can be seen throwing the Shot along with all the young & upcoming Nenagh Shot Putters & offering help & advise to all.

Hazel Galloway of Clonmel A.C. also continues to impress with her sprinting. Hazel is a World-Class sprinter & has previously shown her class at the World championships last year.

There were many other great performances from all our athletes & it is also a credit to the Templemore Club who continue to have the greatest Tipperary representation at all Master’s championships.

Well done & congratulations to all our athletes.
