PHIL Healy set a championship record as she sprinted to 200m gold at the Irish indoor championships at Abbotstown on Saturday.

The West Cork woman took gold with a sensational 23.16, which is just outside the national record of 23.10 that she set recently in Athlone.

Healy was in blistering form in lane six and was a convincing winner as she smashed the previous 200m record of 23.17.

The 25-year-old will hope to complete a double on Sunday when she competes in the 60m for the first time since 2017. Her sister Joan will also be in action in the 60m.
