ADRIENNE Gallen won a bronze medal at the Franconville U18 Meet in France today.
A 23-person Irish team included three Donegal athletes with Lifford-Strabane AC’s Gallen joined by Lucy McGlynn of Tir Chonaill AC and Oisin Kelly from Cranford AC.
Gallen won bronze in the hammer event at Stade Jean Rolland.
Gallen reached out to a best of 57.63.
The hammer gold was won by Audrey Jacob from Netherlands (64.50m) with France’s Florella Freyche (62.70m) taking the silver.
The competition was designed to give athletes the opportunity to compete on the international stage in a year where the European U18 Championships, which were set to take place at the end of August, were cancelled.
McGlynn was sixth in the 100m hurdles, finishing in 14.36 seconds. Marina Perez from Spain took the gold in 13.43 seconds.
Kelly was sixth in the 800m in a time of 1:56.98, the gold there going to Thomas Marques De Andr of France, who won in 1:53.12.Tags:
