Day 2 Meath Inter-Club League Report

Another great night of athletics took place last Friday night in Claremont. Again we had a massive turnout from the club with 30+ Juveniles, 3 Juniors, a senior, and 2 masters competing with great results brought in.
Just some of the Team Under the Banner donated to us by

We had some great photos taken on the day by Neil Witter and I've decided to use some of them to show some really good technique in action. 

Sprint Sequence

Great starting drive. Forward lean looking down.

Midstride- arms at 90 degrees, looking straight down the track, not at any of the other runners

Ball Throw Sequence

Arm Back whole body wound up to make the throw

Second last step, just about to throw, looking up where he wants the ball to go.

Final step forward arm throwing as fast as he can over his shoulder,still looking up where the ball should go

Ball shooting up high and fast, his arm has followed through 

Ball still traveling up and his body has followed through keeping behind the line.
Great throw!!

Start of the long jump good forward lean driving with her arms.

Middle distance start. Concentrating, forward foot behind the line.

Great concentration, all have 90 degree bend of their arms. Running straight down their lanes.
