ADAM NOLAN SPENT most of his sporting life going for gold — but he was delighted to get his hands on some silver yesterday.

The Olympian, who boxed for Ireland at London 2012, clinched his first senior hurling title with Oulart-the-Ballagh who were crowned Wexford champions for a remarkable 10th time in the last 13 years.

Nolan still has a long way to go before he catches up with brother Darren however. He’s been involved in all 10 of the club’s wins since the turn of the century.
