Ciara shatters shot putt record

A teenager with Liscarroll Athletic Club has broken a shot putt record on her way to an All-Ireland title.

Ciara Sheehy, Under 15, was in dominant mode in the 2.72 Shot Putt All Ireland Championships held in Athlone. Of all six throws by her, only one was under 13 metres, leaving no doubt about who the winner was going to be. Her winning throw was 13.68 metres.

"As All Ireland Champion, she has set an example for all those younger than her to get into training," said a spokesperson for the club.
