Back in the UK Namphon Steele is part of a small NI team going to the AAA’s Age group championships in Bedford where she will compete in the T47 100m and 200m. Fon recently posted a PB 200m in the final round of the Power NI Super 5 meeting. Good wishes to all.
One club member who will probably not be wearing club colours at the weekend is Club Secretary Catriona McCorkell. In fact Cat is unlikely to be taking part in any races (although with Cat you can never be sure). She will however have a busy weekend as she is getting married in New York before honeymooning in the States. The best wishes of all club members go with her.
Laura Frey winning silver in the Heptathlon, first all Ireland medal, go Laura!
