IRISH RECORDS FALL AT MILLROSE GAMES
Rhasidat Adeleke (300m) and Roisin Flanagan (2 Mile) were in record breaking form this evening at the prestigious Millrose Games in New York (Feb 11th).
Adeleke (Tallaght AC) set a new Irish 300m record with a second placed 36.42 to better her own Irish 300m record of 36.87 which she had set in January 2022.
Tonight’s performance continues a remarkable start to the 2024 season for Adeleke who has already broken Irish indoor records at 60m (7.15A), 200m (22.49A), and now 300m (36.42).
The Tallaght sprinter lowered her own 60m mark to 7.15A back on January 20th, the same day that she broke her old 200m record of 22.52 with a second placed 22.49A behind training partner Julien Alfred.
Also in record breaking form this evening was Finn Valley’s Roisin Flanagan who clocked a 9:36.70 indoor record in the 2 mile race. Flanagan finished 11th in a blisteringly fast race which went the way of Scotland’s Laura Muir in 9:04.84 after initial race winner Medina Eisa of Ethiopia was disqualified.
Mark English also enjoyed an excellent outing in New York this evening, clocking 1:46:61 over 800m for a third-place finish which was just marginally outside his indoor record of 1:46.10 (2021).
Andrew Coscoran went in the famous Wanamaker Mile race, finishing 12th in 4:01.69.
