Day 5 Report by Martin O'Sullivan

It was a very, very cold afternoon at CIT so well done to all who attended today, the 5th day of the Cork Athletics winter Coaching Series.

In 2 weeks time it will be our last session so the plan would be to have a quick summary on what we have done over the last five sessions, and ending with a jumping competition, hopefully we will see some targets being hit.

See updated tracker (below). Again, please note that this is open to all athletics on the day, so feel free to come on down and get a jump in.

Looking forward to meeting you all again in two weeks time, on Saturday December 9th. Please spread the word to any more high jumpers out there who might be interested.

Thanks also to all those parents who helped out. Very much appreciated
Regards Martin.
