Finn Valley Athlete Prepares for the Season Ahead

Her best of 4-35 m in 2010 qualifies her for the upcoming european indooor champs in Paris and with that in mind has put a really competitive competition programme in place to prepare.

From her U S base in California isnt she lucky considering the weather we have had here in recent times it would have been absolutely impossible to prepare in Ireland. Training has gone well pre Christmas as she linked up with her former teamates at UCLA having graduated from there some months earlier.

She opens her season in Seattle January 15th, then it's Reno Jan.29th New Mexico Feb 5 and back to Seattle Feb 12th. Jump on a plane for Ireland where she competes Feb 19th in Belfast the Irish nationals and one more meet all being well in Europe before March and Paris Europeans . 

Tori whom Patsy Mc Gonagle describes as one of the most positive athletes he has encountered is the Irish record holder in the event and having won the Irish championship in 2010 competed in Barcelona European outdoors. Her background is Derry/Donegal and is no stranger to Ireland having competed regularly in world Irish dancing champs as a young girl. Indeed a spectator at last years nationals was her grandmother who travelled from Derry and was certainly a proud lady on the day.

Tori firmly believes she can acheive olympic qualification in the period ahead and we look forward to monitoring her progress in the months ahead.
