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.

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.
