Emily and Sean attend Triathlon Ireland Youth Participation day
Two Sliabh Beagh swimmers attended the Tri Irelands Youth Participation Day in Castlepark in Dalkey last Sunday. The purpose of this day is to identify merging young talent who are interested in competing in Triathlons. The age range was from 11 to 17 yrs and Tri Ireland provided expert coaching on the day to these prospective athletes. Eamon Tilly from TI was on hand to give his advice. The athletes were put through their paces across all three disciplines, with a lot of emphasis on form, drills and technique. Practice issues such as mounting and dismounting the bicycle during the transition phase was covered, with time trials in running and cycling completed on the day. Our young swimmers hope to be accepted onto The Youth Participation Programme, offers will be e-mailed during the week to the lucky candidates.
Christmas Cracker in Nac
Sixteen Sliabh Beagh swimmers attended the Christmas Cracker Swim Gala at the NAC in Dublin on Sunday December 14th. For Katie Treanor and Kian McAree it was their very first swim gala and it certainly was a super experience for both of them. Overall, it is clear that the hard work in training is paying off with several personal best times for most of the swimmers. Well done to Alannah leonard, Caoimhe leonard, Caragh leonard, Sheenagh Mc Kenna, Jordan Mc Shane, Megan Mc Shane, Cliona Sheridan, Emer Sheridan, Katie Treanor, Kian Mc Aree, Oran O Caolain, Caolan Roberts, Lorcan Roberts, Jamie Sheridan, Enri Shiels and Lui Shiels.
