Rhasidat Adeleke broke her own Irish 200m record with a blistering time of 22.59 in Texas yesterday.
The double U20 European 100m and 200m champion finished a close second to Laila Owens while representing Texas University at the Dual Meet late last night.
The performance also secured Adeleke World and European Championships qualification standards for 2022.

It marks another impressive outing this year for the 19-year-old, who has already broken the Irish 60m (7.17) and 200m (22.85) indoor records in recent months.
The Tallaght AC star also boasts a 36.87 for 300m indoors, which was the fastest time ever by an Irishwoman over the distance indoors, and also the fastest-ever by a European teenager.
