European Throwing Cup Selections


Athletics Ireland have selected a team of 6 athletes to compete at the European Throwing Cup to be held in Leiria, Portugal on March 9th & 10th.

Nicola Tuthill will be a leading contender in the U23 Women’s Hammer, after impressive outings at European Team Championships and European U23s in 2023, while Oisín Joyce will look to make an impact in the U23 Javelin as he builds towards World U20 championships qualification.

Athletics Ireland views the European Throwing Cup as a key competition which contributes to the progression of Irish Throwers.

Athletics Ireland intends to support athlete’s participation at the European Throwing Cup to reflect our aim of improving our standing in the European Team Championships, and to assist in developing throwers who are progressing towards European U20 & U23 Championships, European Championships or Olympic Games qualification.
