Nicola Tuthill of Bandon AC is the Cork City Sports Athlete Of The Month for September. Nicola was the dominant force in the women’s hammer event at the National Junior Championships, in Santry, on September 5th. Her throw of 57.19m was almost 9 meters clear of her nearest rival.
Three weeks earlier, Nicola became only the sixth Irish woman to pass the magical 60m mark, when winning the National senior title. And all of this at the tender age of 16.
The Cork City Sports Athlete Of The Month Award is sponsored by The Echo, Cork’s 96FM & C103, The River Lee and LeisureWorld.
