Schools International Silver for Daniel Ryan

Daniel Ryan travelled to the Emirates Arena, Glasgow last weekend to represent Ireland and CBS Thurles at the SIAB Schools International Combined Events Championships. It was a wonderful day for the fourteen year old who won an individual silver medal in the Junior Boys competition posting 2 competition PBs in the Long Jump (6.48m) & 200m (23.75). Lying 2nd after the 2nd event, Danielmaintained his position despite tremendous pressure from a very strong English team. Daniel also led the Irish Junior Boys team home to a silver medal finish in the team competition with his team-mates David McDonald, CBS Wexford, Damien Hickey, Davis College, Mallow & Jack Rudden Kelly, Castleknock College, Dublin also putting in sterling performances on the day. Daniel finished 6th in this competition last year with his team finishing 4th so it was a great day for him to win 2 international medals.
