T yson Gays’ recent visit to St Laurence O’Tooles new club facilities, really inspired the athletes who travelled to the sensational new indoor arena in Athlone on Saturday last for the Leinster indoor Relays.
“WOW” was one of the words used to describe the facility and then used again when the first relay race started when the club U 13 girls streaked away to a brilliant gold medal performance. This was the order of the day and more and more medals came to the Carlow club. Overall, 8 of the 12 teams from St Laurence O’Toole received medals while some were very unlucky not to reach the podium. All teams were applauded home by the huge Carlow contingent who made the journey.
