Five Westport Athletics athletes competed in the GloHealth National Juvenile Combined Events Championships & Children’s Games in Tullamore on Saturday last where there was tremendous competition with athletes as young as U9 competing in running, throwing and jumping events. 
The performance of the day goes to Sarah Mulroy and Leila O’Malley who won the bronze medal in the U11 team Long Jump jumping a brilliant combined total of 6.95m just 7cm short of the gold. They also came in ninth place in the U11 team 60m sprint.  Jack Sweeney teamed up with Kyle O’Malley in the U9 team 300m where they came home in 4th place in 109.41s, less than a second shy of a medal.  They also paired up in the U9 team 60m sprint where they came 5th, amazing performances from those young boys.
In the U14 Juvenile Combined competition Oisin Ryall unfortunately got injured and was unable to complete the competition.  The U12-U19 National Championships take place on the 4th, 10th, 11th and 18th July
