Sarah Leahy continues on her fast-track to athletic stardom following another huge performance at the weekend.

The 22-year-old won gold in both the 60m and 200m races at the Athletic Association Ireland National Indoor Games in Dublin.

Her run of 7.39 seconds for 60 metres ranks her third in Ireland, just behind the two national records of Rhasidat Adeleke and Molly Scott.

“With the national seniors competition a little over a week away it will be another exciting event for Sarah," Athletics Kerry PRO Tessa Dennison told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Other Killarney Valley athletes in attendance [in Dublin] were high jumpers, Jordan Lee and Ciara Kennelly, where both took silver in their events.”

Leahy’s run in Dublin last week comes just two weeks after she took home three medals at the Intervarsity Indoor Championships in Athlone.

Racing for the University of Limerick team she won gold in the women’s 4x200m relay, took silver in the 200m race and bronze in the 60m race.
