Ulster University Athletes in Fine Form
Adam McMullen produced the furthest outdoor jump of his career to finish 3rd in an extremely high quality Long Jump competition in Loughborough. His jump of 7.77m in the final round was made all the more impressive as it was into a 1.3 m/s headwind. Adam finished behind British Internationals Dan Bramble (7.98m) and Julian Reid (8.07m).
Garbhan McKenna was 6th in a high quality junior mens 110m hurdles race securing a second B standard for the European Junior Championships with 14.28s, just 0.01s behind his PB set at Greystones 2 weeks ago.
Jason Harvey struggled into the headwind before coming home much stronger in the second half of the 400m hurdles match race to finish 4th in 52.27s.
Also in action recently was Ulster Graduate Amy Foster, at the NTC Pure Athletics Sprint meet in Clermont, Florida she opened her season with 11.41 (+0.7) over 100m, just one hundredth off her Irish Record held jointly with Ailis McSweeney. While in the 200m her time of 23.55 was one of her quickest over the distance with wind reading just over the legal limit (+2.1).
