Night of Champions - A Night to Remeber

James Veale, West Waterford AC has sent a report on the event at the Town Hall Dungarvan, and a selection of photos...

Despite a small enough attendances at the town hall theatre last Saturday night for the night of champions seminar with John Treacy, Eamon Coughlan and Catherina Mc Kiernan it still turned out to be an occasion to remember for those in attendance, Organised by Waterford Sports Partnership as part of the John Treacy 10 mile classic weekend the organisers are to be congratulated on bringing together three of Irelands all time legends of the sport..

MC for the evening was that great athletics correspondent of radio and press Fintan Walsh and he brought his own style and humour to the occasion making it a most enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere for all. All three guests spoke of their time competing at the top of their sport and then a piece of video was shown of them in some of their more high profile races. A question and answers session followed which gave a very interesting insight into the training and dedication required to compete on the world stage .There was plenty of photo opportunity and chat after the formalities of the evening rounding off a great night of athletics nostalgia for all.
