Hundreds of young athletes from across the province have competed in the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland's 'Milk It' Athletics Championship.

The two-day event organised by the Ulster Secondary Schools' Athletics Association took place at the Antrim Forum brought together male and female competitors from senior, intermediate, junior and minor levels.

The Championships have formed an integral part of the post primary schools' athletics calendar for many years, and have been the launching pad for a number of Northern Ireland athletes who have gone on to compete at international level.

Dr Mike Johnston, Chief Executive of the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland, said: "Congratulations to all of the athletes who competed in this year's 'Milk It' Athletics Championships, through the district qualifiers and this weekend at the finals.

"The sponsorship naturally complements the range of activities we deliver in post-primary schools across Northern Ireland and provides us with the opportunity to associate milk with a positive sporting environment.

"We are committed to highlighting the importance of milk as part of an active lifestyle."
