LAKERS LADEN DOWN WITH MEDALS
Lakers had another wonderful day representing the club at the Special Olympics Eastern Region Athletics competition on Saturday 16th June in Irishtown Athletic Stadium.
The twenty-two strong team comprised of athletes from both Lakers’ Senior Athletic programme and from the Junior Club. For 14 of our junior members this was the first time competing at an official competition and they did us proud!
The overall medal tally was 17 Gold, 10 Silver and 7 Bronze medals and 8 placed ribbons. Well done to all the athletes.
A big thank you must go to the Coaches and volunteers who helped our members reach their full potential and for supporting them during the competition.
