Sarah Healy Ran The Best 1500m Race Of Her Life In Birmingham
By PJ Browne

Sarah Healy ran the best 1500m race of her life at the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix on Saturday.

The Dubliner, who turned 21 last week, ran 4:06.94 as she finished second behind Ethiopia's Dawit Seyaum in a top class field.

Healy's time is a new Irish U23 record, and took nearly four seconds off her previous indoor personal best which she ran earlier this month in France. It is also faster than her fastest outdoor time of 4:07.12.

The performance makes her the second fastest Irish woman ever indoors for 1500m, just 0.52 behind Ciara Mageean's national record which was set two years ago in Boston.

Healy made her move on the penultimate lap, moving from fifth to second, where she stayed as Seyaum won in 4:04.35.
