Phil Healy Continues Flying Form With Two New PBs in Geneva

Three days on from becoming the fastest Irish woman ever over 100m, Phil Healy continued her fine form at a meeting in Geneva on Saturday.

The Bandon sprinter new personal bests in both the 200m and the 400m.

Healy ran 52.19 in the 400m, finishing second. The run improved on her best ever outdoor time of 52.63, which she ran during the week. The Irish record, set by Joanne Cuddihy in 2007, is 50.73.

The 23-year-old followed up that run with another great run in the 200m, one which puts her at number three on the all-time Irish list. Healy ran 23.17, against finishing in second. That's 0.15 behind Sarah Healy's Irish record set in 2001.
