We are delighted as a club to have had a wonderful international athlete in Tojo performing and winning at events across Europe over the 2016 season and joining Tojo for 2017 on the international stage will be Dympna Kelly, Siobhan Murtagh and Andy Brennan. For a small, relatively newly formed, rural club to enjoy such success is wonderful and our congratulations goes to all four.
Para-triathlete club member Tojo Lazarri represented Ireland several times in 2016, winning a gold and bronze medal in international competitions and will compete in several events in 2017. Tojo is also selected as a development athlete by Triathlon Ireland and picked a trophy for his category victory at the Tri Ireland awards.
Dympna Kelly, who formerly represented Ireland in rowing won selection for the European Olympic Distance Age Group event in Austria in June while rounding off a super 2016 by winning her age group national title! Kelly topped a total field of 270 triathletes in the 35-39 age national category and won by the slimmest of margins with points of 456.751 with Brianne Mulvihill of Piranha TC from Dublin in second on 456.565 points and Victoria Nicholson on GoTriTC in Clare in third on 451.673 points.
Former junior international athlete Siobhan McWeeney Murtagh will go in the European Duathlon Championships in Spain in April. Murtagh was third in her age category behind overall National Duathlon Champion Lorraine Carey in first and Bronagh Adams in second.
Completing the internationals will be Andy Brennan who has qualified for the European Middle Distance (Half iron distance) Championships in Denmark in June after his placing at the National Middle Distance Championships in Kerry last month.
