July 10, 2024

Conor Penney has been selected to represent Ireland at the U18 European Championships in Slovakia later this month. This prestigious selection is a testament to Conor’s exceptional talent and dedication to the sport of high jump.

Conor’s progression in high jump has been nothing short of remarkable this year. His impressive growth is a direct result of his relentless commitment and hard work. Conor's club, Craughwell AC, along with his coaches and family, are immensely proud of his achievements. This milestone is a reflection of the many years of dedication and effort that Conor has invested in the sport alongside his coaches.

Having closely followed Conor's progress throughout 2024, we at Run Republic are delighted to see him reach such a significant milestone at such a young age. Conor, who is just 15 years old and will turn 16 in September, has shown tremendous potential and promise in his athletic career thus far. 

We eagerly anticipate watching him compete in Slovakia and are confident that he will continue to make his club and family proud.
