Nadia Power Starts Season By Breaking Irish 800m Indoor Record

Nadia Power set a new Irish 800m indoor record on Saturday.

The 23-year-old ran 2:02.44 as she finished second behind Great Britain's Keely Hodgkinson in Vienna.

The run broke Siofra Cleirigh Buttner's nearly three-year-old record by 0.02. Power's previous best indoors was 2:05.62.

The Dubliner's main objective right now in the European Indoor Athletics Championships which are scheduled to take place in Poland on March 5 - 7th.

Power was not the only Irish athlete to have a good day in Vienna. Ciara Neville equalled her best of 7.30 for the 60m while her Emerald AC clubmate Sarah Lavin set a new PB of 8.24 for the 60m hurdles.
