Commonwealth Games Brisbane

Sommer Lecky the young 17yrold Castlederg athlete that competes outa Finn Valley since her primary school days was in the Commonwealth Games Final in the high jump over the weekend clearing 1.80 in a meet attended by 40000 so that in itself a learning experience . This height ranked her 10th on the day but a period in her learning curve that should certainly prove very valuable for both her and her coach Niall Wilkinson .Beyond this competition she could realistically target Tokyo 2020 the Donegal record which stands to Sharon Gallen at 1.88 and most immediate the European juniorsa in the years ahead .


Elsewhere Valley athlete Oisin O Gailin  a scholarship at West Alabama returned 3.51.59  1500 in a quality race at the Univ Of Mississippi . This translates as a pb for Oisin and a school record
