University of Limerick student, and 18-year-old member of the Athletics club, Jenna Bromell set a new Irish 400 metre indoor record at the National indoor Junior Athletics championships last month. Jenna, who studies chemical engineering, ran the race in an incredible 54.19 seconds. The event was held on the last day of January in the state of the art indoor arena at Athlone Institute of Technology.
The group recently took a trip to Harvard and Yale to take on a number of different colleges where Jenna was also among a number of athletes to win in their respective categories. She won her 400m race quite convincingly on January 16 when competing with many of the best collegiate athletes from the NE of the USA.
