On the day when the great Jamaican Usain Bolt triumphed in London, Ardee and District U12 boys followed suit in Morton Stadium, Santry.
Danny O’Brien, Evin Quinn and Caolan McCabe bolted up in a famous one, two, three in the All Ireland Development Championship 60m sprint. A typical Irish summer day proved to be no obstacle to the Ardee athletes as Caolan produced a fine series of leaps in driving rain to win silver in the U12 long jump. Danny added a bronze to the total medal haul in the 600m final. Amy Manning ran a gallant 8th in the girls U12 600m final in a highly competitive race. As the Track and Field season draws to a close a big thank you to all our coaches.
