Nenagh Olympic A.C. hosted the inaugural North Tipperary Primary Schools Indoor Competition for 4th, 5th & 6th Class pupils in Nenagh Indoor Stadium on Wednesday 23rd October. With over 500 children from Primary Schools across North Tipperary taking part, it was a showcase of what juvenile athletics should be about – great fun, smiles all round & an atmosphere full of excitement & enthusiasm. All children got to partake in one track & one field event with events ranging from 60m sprint, 300m, 600m Long Jump & Shot Putt. The finale was a series of 4 x 100m Relays for all boys, all girls & mixed teams with most children taking home a medal on the day.
Our thanks to Nenagh Olympic A.C. for hosting this wonderful new initiative, to the teachers of all the participating schools for taking the time to attend, to the parents & grandparents in attendance & to everyone who helped make it a memorable day for all concerned.
