Finley siblings impress in the field

There were just three St Peter's athletes in action at the Leinster Junior indoor Championships in Athlone at the weekend - but all three performed with distinction.

First up on Saturday was Chloe Finley who leaped to an excellent 10.18m in the final of the Under-18 triple jump, earning her the silver medal in what was a very close contest.

Not to be outdone by his younger sister, Daniel Finley decided to get among the medals on Sunday in the Junior Shot competition, throwing a personal best of 12.30m to earn himself an excellent bronze medal.

His clubmate Martin McGrane also threw a PB of 10.02m, earning himself a very respectable sixth place in the same competition.

Daniel also took part in the 60m sprint event but was unlucky to narrowly miss out on the final.
