News from the Irish Indoor Championships in Athlone earlier today is that Sean Breathnach has won the Senior Men's Shot Putt with a massive throw of 16.75m. This is a PB which surpasses even his outdoor PB of 16.67, set back in 2010. The statisticians at Athletics Ireland say it is the seventh biggest throw in Irish history - a fair claim to fame. I've lost count of the number of National titles that Sean has won, indoors and outdoors, over the past few years - massive congrats to him on his biggest yet.

Sean wasn't the only GCH'er to be spotted in the fabulous new stadium in Athlone. Club president Oliver Geraghty is captured taking a break from official starter's duty below.
