Congratulations to Sarah Healy



Congratulations to Sarah Healy

Sarah Healy (Blackrock) smashed the Irish U20 and Youth 3,000m records to win her maiden national senior title in 9:10.43 on the first day of the Irish Life Health National Indoor Championships

Healy was simply outstanding at the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena as she left Rio 2016 Olympian Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle) firmly in her wake.

A rare talent was on display and the Blackrock teenager (just turned 17) surpassed the U20 record of 9:28.67 (by Rose Anne Galligan) and the Youth record of 9:35.1 (by Amy Rose Farrell).

O’Flaherty led the first km in roughly 3:10 and then Healy took over winding it up sublimely to 3:05 and finishing off with a swift 2:55 final km. Meghan Ryan (DSD) got up for bronze in 9:43.35.
