The finale of the firmus energy Fab 5 series welcomed almost 200 athletes from across Northern Ireland to the Mary Peters Track with the hopes of bringing home gold. The series, now in its 29th year is organised by Lagan Valley and open to athletes aged 8 and up.
Meet 5 had local Belfast athletes dominate the podium. From Orangegrove Athletics Club, Isaac Orr was especially triumphant when he placed first in the U11 Boys’ Long Jump and U11 Boys’ 100m race.
“firmus energy are proud to support aspiring athletes across Northern Ireland. This year’s Fab 5 series continues to be a huge success, the record breaking attendance are a testament to the hard work of Lagan Valley Athletics Club. It is great to see such a wide range of sporting events taking place and it offers something for everyone, of all abilities and ages.”
John Glover, from Lagan Valley Athletics Club, said:
“We are incredibly grateful to firmus energy and all the athletes who joined us for the Fab 5 series this year. Our aim is always to promote athletics and facilitate the development of aspiring athletes throughout Northern Ireland.”
The firmus energy Fab 5 series is set to return next April 2020, giving aspiring and returning athletes perfect time to get some practice in!
