Blackrock AC 17-year-old Sarah Healy continued her astonishing form by setting a new Irish Youth and Under-20 record over 800m at the Belfast International meet.

Healy clocked 2:02.76 to finish second behind compatriot Claire Mooney (2:02.61), a time which leaves her top of the European Under-18 rankings.

She's part of the Ireland team the travels to the European Under-18 Athletics Championship in Hungary in July. Sonia O'Sullivan's daughter Sophie is also in the Irish party.

It's been an astonishing month for Healy.

Having smashed Ciara Mageean's Irish senior girls 1,500 metre record with a 4:18.32 at the All-Ireland schools track and field championships at the start of June, the 17-year-old Holy Child Killiney student ran the second then fastest time ever for an under-18 European.

Her time of 4:09.25 in Tubingen, Germany two weeks ago was the fastest in 32 years, since Romania's Ana Padurean ran 4:06.02 in 1982.

In February she smashed the Irish U20 and Youth 3,000m records to win her maiden national senior title in 9:10.43 on the first day of the Irish Life Health National Indoor Championships.
