Ben Daly and Sean Broderick participated in the All Ireland Indoor Championships in the new AIT arena on 23rd and 24th March last.

Ben missed out on qualification for the final in the B/15 60m; his time was 8.0. This was a great achievement to qualify for the All Irelands he has only been training for a short period and has lots of potential.

Sean Broderick is showing significant improvement this season. He qualified in three events in the B/15 age group. In the 60m he ran a time of 7.82 in the heat which qualified him for the final. In the final he finished 6th in a time of 7.81 which is a PB for him. Sean equalled his PB of 1.60m achieved at the Indoor Munster Championships in the High Jump. He cleared 1.45m, 1.50m, 1,55m and 1.60m on his first attempts and narrowly missed 1.65m. He finished 5th in this event. Sean went on to produce a huge PB of 5.13m in the Long Jump to finish in 5th place, There was only 1cm between 4th and 5th and 17cm between 5th and 3rd. This is an excellent start for Sean in the 2013 season.
