IRELAND’S NADIA POWER continued her fine start to the indoor season in Liévin, France on Tuesday evening.

The 23-year-old ran 2:03.84 to finish second in her 800m race at the World Athletics Indoor Tour meet, won by Poland’s Joanna Jozwik in a time of 2:02.97.

Great Britain’s Jemma Reekie won the evening’s other 800m race in 2:00.64.

Dublin’s Power kicked off her season in style last month when she smashed her indoor PB and set a new Irish indoor record of 2:02.44 in Vienna.

She backed up that run with another promising display in Metz on Saturday where she clocked 2:02.96.

Later on Tuesday evening, Andrew Coscoran set a new indoor PB in the men’s 1500m, won in scintillating fashion by Jakob Ingebrigtsen.
