Dundalk athlete wins U20 Athlete of the Year

Dundalk and St Gerard's AC athlete Gina Akpe-Moses won the U20 Athlete of the Year award at the Irish Life Health National Athletics Awards this afternoon.

The ceremony took place at th Crowne Plaza in Santry today.

Gina became the first Irish athlete to win a gold medal at the European U20 championships in 12-years when winning the 100m in Italy last July.

She also enjoyed success at the championships in the team event, though becoming the first Irish sprinter to win a title at U20, U23 or senior level is her standout achievement.
