Golding is an emerging force in Irish athletics



IARLAITH Golding is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with at sprinting and hurdling in particular, while he also excels in the high jump.

In August while representing Ireland, the Balla athlete and a student of St. Colman’s College, Claremorris, competed in the prestigious Celtic Games where he smashed the 100-metre Under 16 hurdles (he’s still only 14) with a time of 13.58 at the famous Morton Stadium.

It wasn’t his first gold medal in 2017.

In March he brought home four medals and followed that up with two gold medals in the junior men’s high jump and 80m hurdles at the Irish Schoolboys Championships where he represented St. Colman’s College.

Also during a phenomenal year for this young athlete he broke records at the National Juvenile Championships in the 250m hurdles and the 100m sprint hurdle.
