Congratulations Anna ...
Congratulations to Anna Jones on her inclusion in the Trinity Sports Scholars programme. Trinity Sport in association with Bank of Ireland officially announced its sport scholars for the 2019 – 2020 season on Tuesday, 29 October at an event for family and friends in the Dining Hall, Trinity College Dublin. Special guests on the night included Trinity Sport ambassador and motivational speaker Mark Pollock who spoke to the Trinity Sport Scholars about the importance of collaboration commenting: “There is now an opportunity for Trinity Sport Scholarship students to take advantage of the performance supports within the scholarship programme. It’s also incredibly important to share this knowledge and collaborate with your club teammates.”
Head of Sport Michelle Tanner emphasised the importance of the programme: “It is said that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ similarly it takes a university environment to produce a top performing athlete. Our athletes often make it look easy but it’s important to recognise the effort that goes into producing a great performance. Our role in Trinity Sport is to make that journey a little bit easier.”
Well Anna Jones has produced many a great performance for Mullingar Shamrocks and Westmeath often making it look easy in the process in 2018 and 2019 and is a worthy recipient of one of 65 new scholarships awarded in 16 different sports.
Among the benefits on offer to scholars are specialised strength and conditioning training, a dedicated medical care pathway, and financial support
