Ross Cosgrove was the only representative on this occasion from Tuam Athletic Club at the Irish Life National track and field finals in Tullamore over the weekend. Ross competed in the U14 200m event.

He managed a 4th place finish in his heat in a time of 27.76 and this performance saw him qualify for the 200m final later on in the day.

Despite running in an extremely high standard race and finishing outside of the medals, Ross bettered his time in the final running a very fast 27.63 and finishing in a very respectable 7th position overall. Congratulations to Ross.

Final preparations are underway for the Athletics Ireland summer camp which will take in St. Jarlath’s College starting on Monday 30th July. Further details may be found on the Tuam A.C. Juveniles Facebook page.
