Donegal athlete Karl Griffin was crowned the Junior Athlete of the Year at the National Athletic Awards ceremony in Dublin.
The Donegal Town native enjoyed a superb season and his performances reiterated why he’s considered one of the brightest prospects in current Irish athletics.
Griffin reached the 800m semi-finals at the World Junior Championships, running a personal best of 1.47.44.
That superb and accomplished performance singled out Griffin as a athlete that could make a serious impact if he keeps developing over the next few years.
With Mark English winning the overall athlete of the year it was a great night for Donegal athletics.
Well done to both Karl Griffin and Mark English on their wonderful achievements.Tags:
