Lifford-Strabane AC athlete Finn O’Neill won the Under-17 Mens heptathlon at the weekend in Sheffield.
Finn came out on top at the English U17 Multi Events Championships with an impressive 4,902 points, winning by nearly 600 points ahead of Welsh athlete Iolo Grant in second.
The all-round consistent performance from Finn was what proved crucial on his way to victory, as he finished in the top 5 of all 7 events he competed in.
A time of 7.39 in the 60m followed by a leap of 6.20m in the long jump saw him finish fifth in both events.
A throw of 13.34 in the shot put was the best of the event as he won, while in the high jump he placed 3rd as he cleared 1.77m.
A remarkable 8.27 in the 60m hurdles, the fourth fastest time in the UK this year, gave him a massive win as he inched closer to glory.
Two second place finishes in the final 2 events with a 3.53 cleared in the pole vault followed by 2:44.15 in the 1000m race saw him finish top by 592 points.
