Rafael Mccaf­frey

Fingal Independent - - SPORT -

Rafael Mccaf­frey wasn’t con­tent with merely break­ing the Leinster long jump record this sum­mer – he only went and smashed it three times! The Ra­toath AC ath­lete from the Ward com­pleted a hat-trick of In­door and Out­door Leinster cham­pi­onship ti­tles and in the process sent the 18-year record spi­ralling from 6.47m to 6.64m in less than an hour. Rafa has won the last three Leinster ti­tles in a row, both in­door and out­door, and this year he saw off all the U18 and U19 ath­letes who were com­pet­ing in the same event to­gether.
