ALANA FRATTOROLI took home bronze in the SHOT PUTT with a great throw of 12.62m.
With such a high calibre of elite athletes competing this weekend at The GloHealth Indoor athletics Championship, it was a tough challenge for our 4 athletes representing Limerick AC to hold their nerves in Athlone competing against the best of the best of Irish senior athletes with some athletes having Rio on their minds and others in preparation for the outdoor season.
Roland Pika took on the 60m with a time of 7.71 and the 200m.
Gossy Mangidi Ngonda also took on the 60m with a time of 7.72 and the 200m.
John Mc Callion finishing 4th in his 800m heat.
Limerick AC would like thank coach Dave Frattoroli who has been there for Alana in her special moments in athletics . Long may this duo continue!
