IRELAND’S NADIA POWER produced a superb performance at the World Indoor Tour in Torún, Poland this evening, smashing her own Irish indoor 800m record to finish third in a time of 2:00.98.

The 23-year-old had previously set a national record of 2:02.44 when she finished second in the 800m at the Vienna Indoor Meet just over a fortnight ago.

Templeogue AC star Power went better again in Torún among a world-class field, clocking a result that puts her in good stead in relation to an Olympic qualification spot.

Power has produced three of her fastest times ever during the 2021 season, also improving on her outdoor best of 2:01.01 — set in September 2020 — which was a new Irish U23 record.

The Dubliner will now return home to continue preparations for the European Indoor Athletics Championships which are set to take place between 5 and 7 March, also in Torún.
