Nadia Power Runs Perfectly Executed Race To Win 800m In Belgium

Nadia Power won the 800m at the IFAM meeting in Belgium in 2.02.83, the second fastest time of her career indoors.

In a perfectly executed race, the Dubliner took the lead heading into the bell and won by almost a second from Germany’s Tanja Spill in 2:03.75, with Italy’s Elena Bello third in 2:03.91. Naas' Claire Mooney finished sixth in the race, running 2:06.79.

This follows on from a series of great performances by Power including breaking the Irish record in her first outing of the season, clocking 2:02.44 when finishing second in the 800m at the Vienna Indoor Meet a fortnight ago.

Elsewhere, Siofra Clerigh-Buttner ran an impressive 4:09:67 PB in a high class 1500m field at the World Indoor Tour in Boston on Saturday while national 800m champion Iseult O'Donnell won the Val d'Oise 800m in 2:03.27.
