11th in Europe for Ryan

Daniel Ryan, Moycarkey Coolcroo A.C. finished an excellent 11th place in the Decathlon at the European Youth Track & Field Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th July. Competing in almost 40 degrees heat in his second ever Decathlon, Ryan posted a new personal best with his final score of 6752 points, an increase of almost 200 points on his score in Somerset in April. He also ran a season's best of 14.45 in the 100mH & posted new personal bests in the 100m (11.23), 400m (52.18), 1500m (5.01.29) & Discus producing the longest throw of the competition with 47.27m. Having moved up & down the rankings during the competition, his best placing was 3rd after the 7th event (Discus) but average performances in his final three events (Pole Vault, Javelin & 1500m) saw his points score down on what he would have liked to achieve. Daniel will take away this very valuable experience & build on it over the Winter for next season when he hopes to attain the Decathlon standard for the European Junior Championships which will be held in Italy in 2017.
