Finn Valley AC duo Dempsey McGuigan and Sommer Lecky are set to be nominated for next year’s Commonwealth Games by Athletics Northern Ireland.
The nominees need to be ratified by the Commonwealth Games body in January.
Hammer thrower McGuigan and high jumper Lecky are among 15 athletes set to be put forward. The Games are being held in the Gold Coast, Australia next year.
Athletics Northern Ireland officials met on Sunday to decide on their nominations which included adjudicating on the nominations order.
McGuigan is the second-ranked on the nominations with Lecky at fourth.
In May, Lecky recorded a massive pb at the Ulster Schools Athletics Championships when she leapt a super 1.85 metres.
That effort, at the Antrim Forum, was a new Irish Youth, Junior, Schools, Donegal and Finn Valley record.
She had earlier reached the Commonwealth standard when she jumped a 1.82m.
McGuigan was sixth in the hammer throw at the European Athletics Team Championships First League in Vaasa, Finland in June.
The University of Mississippi student reached out to 65.72m, a little off his 70.55m personal best.
McGuigan broke the 70-metre barrier in April when he set the new Donegal record of 70.55m at the Mt Sac Relay in Walnut, California.Tags:
