Irish Universities Track and Field Championships

The weekend of the  21st April 2012  saw our student athletes in action once again as they competed in Athlone at the Irish Universities Track and Field Championships (IUAA). The men’s team finished in an excellent 6th position in the Division 1 Championship keeping the might of TCD, UCC and QUB in their wake. The women’s team triumphed in the Division 2 Championship.

Pride of place at the weekend went to our pentathlon athletes, David O’Brien, Martin O’Sullivan and Patricia Lange who won the coveted Combined Events Trophy and Thomas Houlihan who cleared 4.40m to win the men’s pole vault.

Check out the action photos (thanks to our team photographer Jiri Thoma) below.
