Olympic gold medallist Kellie Harrington.
The National Dairy Council are offering four lucky schools or sports clubs the chance to train with Olympic gold medallist Kellie Harrington and three of Ireland’s top GAA Stars - Cian Lynch, Grace Walsh and Con O’Callaghan.
The Training Day with Kellie will take place on Friday 8th October at the Sport Ireland Campus in Blanchardstown, Dublin. This is a fantastic opportunity for a winning boxing club to train in the state-of-the-art facilities at Sport Ireland with one of the world’s most successful and admired female boxers.
Kellie said, “I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be involved in the NDC’s training day last year which was such a rewarding experience, so I am delighted to have been named as an official ambassador for the third year of the campaign!
“Eating well is essential for boxing like every sport and adapting your nutritional intake to your sport is a necessity, so it was great to have the opportunity once again to advise our young sports people on why consuming milk is such a key component in fuelling your body correctly for your sport.”
