The 15 year old hammer thrower from Letterkenny heads off with a string of top drawer performances under his belt recently, having won both the All Ireland Juvenile Championships and a second placed finish for Ireland at last weekend’s Schools International in Scotland.Along with the silver medal and a personal best throw of 63.78m in Scotland, the Lifford AC athlete’s weekend was topped off when he received the Sean Nyham Award for best Irish athlete at the Championships. O’Donnell will compete in the qualifying rounds next Tuesday, where he will hopefully continue his recent fine form to qualify through to Fridays final.At the athletic track in Lifford this evening, Brendan was joined by club coaches, athletes and well wishers, with a presentation made by Club Chairperson Sharon Foley Gallen to Brendan in recognition of his outstanding achievement qualifying for the Games.Also travelling tomorrow morning are Finn Valley athletes Aaron Mc Glynn, Arlene Crossan, and Sommer Lecky. A great achievement for four young Donegal athletes to qualify for these Championships and who will no doubt do themselves, their family, club, county, province and Ireland proud next week.Well done from all at Lifford AC. Many well-known faces from Lifford AC turn out to say farewell to Brendan.HAMMER THROWER BRENDAN RECEIVES TREMENDOUS SEND OFF ON WAY TO YOUTH OLYMPICS was last modified: July 21st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Brendan O’Donnelldonegalhammer throwJunior OlympicsLIfford AClast_img
