Field Events 2018

Our 'Seven Super Athletes' who competed on 21/05/18, representing Scoil Mhuire.

The Field Events Day at Santry includes:
  • Hurdles
  • Long jump
  • Shot Put
  • 600m
The girls didn't have much time to train for their specific events but they did amazing! 

All of our hurdlers got through to the final and our first medal was won in the 600m!! 😃

Check out the photos from this day below:





Long jump

Sprint and jump!

Shot Put

Concentrate, focus on form, throw!


The 600m is the toughest race. It's one lap and a half of the track at a very fast pace. You must be strong both mentally and physically for this race.

Not only must you battle for your place on the track on the inside lane - you must also sprint at the end of this race. The last 100m of this race is a fight against your mind and body to push through to the finish line. 

Successful 600m runners are very determined and focused. They have the ability to pace themselves correctly and they push themselves to the absolute limit. 

I am so proud of our medal winner this year. She has progressed from an incredible 4th place last year to winning a 3rd place medal this year. She displays all the qualities of a top athlete and is so well deserving of her Bronze medal - Congratulations! 😀🏆🎉
