The 2 Sineáds made a little bit of history for the club at the weekend with both featuring on the podium at the same time but for different teams at the Irish Universities Track & Field Championships in Cork with Sineád Treacy’s NUIG team taking the silver medals in the 4x100m in a time of 49.66 and Sineád Gaffney’s UL team taking the bronze medals just 0.03 seconds (or 24cm!) behind in a time of 49.69.
Great to see two of our athletes on the podium at the highest levels. Sineád G ran 2.23.07 in the heats of the 800m and then 2.23.73 to place 5th in the final while Sineád T made it a very special day with a bronze medal in the 4x400m in a time of 4.01.15 and 5th in the final of the 200m in a time of 25.83, with all 3 of her performances taking the college record for NUIG.
Massive well done to both athletes – the club is very proud of their achievements!
