Nadia Power Smashes Her Own Irish 800m Indoor Record

Nadia Power broke her own Irish 800m indoor record at the World Athletics Indoor Tour event in Torun, Poland on Wednesday evening.

The Dubliner ran 2:00.98 as she finished third behind winner Habitam Alemu of Ethiopia and second placed Joanna Jozwik of Poland.

The 23-year-old has been in superb form this season. It was just 17 days ago in Vienna that she first broke the Irish record, running 2:02.44.

At the weekend, she won the 800m at the IFAM meeting in Belgium, running what was at the time the second fastest time of her career.
