FINN VALLEY ATHLETES SHINE IN TULLAMORE

first_imgSunshine and track and field certainly are a perfect fit.Local athletes from Finn Valley were to the fore over the weekend in Tullamore in a variety of disciplines.Prominent gold medal performances from James Kelly in the shot erasing big brother Johns national record in that age division getting out to 15-52m a whooping mark by any standards. He was leading into the last actual throw in the javelin also only for a better effort from the Leinster competitor both in excess of 43m.That big brother mentioned previously hit in and around 18m to win under 18 shot and was off up the road to catch a plane to the Ukraine.Blaithnaid Patton went over 11m to 11.20 a serious step up for the Stranorlar girl in the triple leading a 1 2 3 for Donegal with Caoimhe Mc Menamin in the bronze position that’s a big boost for coach Niall Wilkinson who has put in years of work round this athlete.Aaron Mc Glynn has been in flying form in training recently mixing it with the older lads after a period of injury got boxed in but held the head and was an impressive winner now for a shot at the 1500 in a few weeks. The only factor in the development of the young Glenfinn boy is coach Peader Mc Granaghan who has a singular belief .Naoimh Mc Granaghan continues to improve in the hammer now getting out to 40mplus no mean feat and she will build on this no doubt at all a silver medal on this occasion .Jade Leeper was back in business in both the shot and discus medalling in both but as she herself says more to come in the years ahead.Jack Mc Geehin silver in the triple ,Ian Brennan over 6m in the long bronze, Daniela Jansen high jump medal on the Saturday and terrific high jumping from Sommer Lecky at 1.51 clearance just beaten on countback .Sean Mc Donagh just a few centimetres down on the gold in the javelin but an encouraging silver . He has transitioned well from ball throw to javelin thanks to coach Bernie O Callaghan, Fourteen medals in total for the squad and another weekend to come . Well done coaches, parents and family members without you there would be a very limited story to tell . Many other top 6 most prominent Dylan Kearns 4th javelin and Louise Mc Sorley 6th turbo and Lauren Callaghan made 80m final needs to get out of the blocks sharper but time aplenty to work on that and yes that relay still to come . Cate Smith came in the top 8 in the shot .Finally this week our sympathy goes out to Kathleen Kelly and Bernie Crossan and the wider family circle on the death of their mum in Clonmany . May she rest in peaceFINN VALLEY ATHLETES SHINE IN TULLAMORE was last modified: July 8th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Athletesfinn valleylast_img read more

Larry Fitzgerald had his worst game of the year. Patrick Peterson had his worst game of the year. Calais Campbell, Michael Floyd, John Brown and Rashad Johnson had their worst games of the year. Jared Veldheer had one of his worst games. Bobby Massie had one of his worst games. It’s fair to blame Palmer because the quarterback always gets blamed, but a good game from Palmer wouldn’t have overcome the franchise-wide beat down that Carolina put on Arizona.There are no excuses. There are facts. Before Palmer hurt his finger, his season QB rating stood at 106. After that incomplete pass to Floyd against Philadelphia until the end of the NFC Championship game, Palmer’s QB rating was 78.2. He went from a 31/9 touchdown-to-interception ratio to an 8/8. The finger isn’t an excuse because Palmer didn’t adjust.  Palmer needed to learn sooner what his body could do and what throws he couldn’t make. I refuse to believe, however, his finger was irrelevant to how Palmer finished the season.After the way the 2015 season ended, it’s easy to bury Palmer. You can declare, “Palmer will never win the big game,” because he hasn’t proven you wrong. Let me be the only person in Arizona who will step up and sit in the driver’s seat of the Palmer bandwagon. I want Palmer back as the Cardinals’ quarterback in 2016. Not just because he’s a better option than “what’s out there,” but also because you can win a Super Bowl with Palmer. Yes, I said that.

(AP Photo/David J. Phillip) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling I don’t know if Arizona will win, but a healthy Palmer won’t be the reason they lose. I won’t dismiss the third-highest 2015 passer rating in the league due to what I saw Sunday. There’s a long list of quarterbacks with a history of playoff failure. Some of them got out from under the “can’t win the big one” tag to end up winning the big one. There’s no reason why Palmer can’t add to the list.Palmer is relentless in his preparation but most of that preparation is done through drawing on past experiences.  He’s always learned through failure. We’re talking about a man who will finish second in the MVP voting. He will learn from this year and be more prepared for the emotions of the postseason next year. The players and coaches believe in Palmer, and so do I.Be angry. Don’t panic. Bet against Palmer now and I’ll bet you’ll get run over by the bus later. – / 69center_img Carson Palmer played terrible.There is no silver lining. Quarterback is the number one position in all of sports. The quarterback played poorly in his first Cardinals postseason start and was awful in his second. It’s almost impossible to win a playoff game when there’s a meltdown at the quarterback position.I’ll be glad to lead the frustration train that is angry at Palmer for playing so poorly. The Cardinals are 13-0 when Palmer has an 85 or better QB rating and are 1-4 when he finishes a game below 85. Palmer has been the key all year.  Arizona can’t win when they get a performance at quarterback like what was on display in Carolina.
