Nadia Power Rounds Out Remarkable Eight Days With Zagreb Win

Nadia Power Rounds Out Remarkable Eight Days With Zagreb Win

Nadia Power won the 800m at World Athletics Continental Tour in Zagreb on Tuesday night, running 2:02.08.

It was her second fastest time ever over the distance as she won convincingly from Hanna Hermansson of Sweden in 2:02.66 with Freitas Marta Pen of Portugal third in 2:03.02.

This rounds off an incredible run of form by the Dubliner who has run three of the fastest times of her career in the space of eight days.

A week ago, she set a New Irish U23 800m record running 2:01.01 in Rovereto, Italy finishing third in a top class international field. That time puts her sixth on the all-time Irish list.

She followed that up with 2:02.12 at the PTS Meeting in Samorin, Slovakia on Friday. That now ranks as the third fastest time of her career.
