A YOUNG Wexford athlete won the boys' Under-15 long jump title at the All-England Athletics Indoor championships in the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham on Sunday last.
David McDonald from Menapians smashed his PB with a jump of 6.16m to take the title, beating Arnoold Mensuoh of Highgate whose best jump was 6.09m.
This is a fantastic achievement by such a young athlete, as it is not often our Juveniles get to compete, let alone win, titles in the U.K. He has done his club, his county and his country proud. All eyes will be on David in two weeks' time when he competes in the Leinster Indoors in Athlone.
The County Masters Road Race will be held on Sunday, March 10, in Rathangan. Full details and directions will be posted on www.wexfordathletics.com next week, with registrations on the day.
