Broth­ers to rep­re­sent Scot­land

The Oban Times - - Sport -

SCOT­TISH Ath­let­ics this week an­nounced their na­tional team for the Celtic Games in Swansea on Satur­day.

Broth­ers Paddy and Fin­bar Dunne have both been se­lected to rep­re­sent their coun­try at this event. Paddy has been cho­sen for the men’s un­der-18 javelin com­pe­ti­tion and Fin­bar has been se­lected for the boys’ un­der-16 dis­cus.

Only one ath­lete per event is cho­sen and the re­cent suc­cess of both boys this sea­son has earned them a place on the team. This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity and gives all ath­letes in­volved the chance to com­pete at in­ter­na­tional level in their teens.

For Paddy, this fol­lows on from rep­re­sent­ing Scot­land at the schools in­ter­na­tional in Kent ear­lier in July when he won a bronze medal. Both boys also took part in the youth games in Gothen­burg at the end of June, with Fin­bar com­ing home with a bronze medal.

The boys will be trav­el­ling to Swansea this week with the na­tional team, ac­com­pa­nied by In­ver­ness Har­ri­ers lead throws coach Duncan Flock­hart, who has been ap­pointed throws coach to the na­tional team.

Fin­bar and Paddy Dunne will rep­re­sent Scot­land at the Celtic Games in Swansea.
