SOMMER LECKY and James Kelly have been confirmed on the Ireland squad for the European Under-20 Championships.
Finn Valley AC pair Lecky and Kelly won national titles yesterday in Tullamore and have today been named on the traveling party for the Eureopan U20s, which take place in Boras, Sweden, from July 18-21.
Lecky – who is coached by Niall Wilkinson – soared over at 1.80 metres to take high jump gold by a comfortable margin.
Kelly – coached by his father, John – had little trouble in the shot, the St Johnston man reaching out to 16.72m and only denied a whopping 18.01m effort by the narrowest of infringements.
Finn Valley’s Aaron McGlynn has been named as a non-traveling reserve for the men’s 4x400m. The Glenfin man has returned to the track after a period of inaction due to injury.
