Morton Juvenile Live 2020 (4th Sept)
The Morton Juvenile Live on Friday evening 4th September in Santry was an open juvenile T&F meeting aimed at younger athletes that had their Regional and National Championships cancelled due to Covid-19. Great credit is due to the Dublin County Board and David Matthews the Athletics Ireland Development Officer for the Dublin Region, for organising the event in these very challenging times. Given his ranking in the sprints, Kyle Faherty was drawn in the faster of the two races of the 80m u/14 and despite cool, showery conditions, which are not conducive for sprinting Kyle finished a very close second in 10.49 seconds into a stiff 2.2 metres per second headwind, only four hundredths of a second behind the winner. This was Kyle’s first and only outdoor race this year, so he was very happy to have run so well.
