Ireland's Kelly Murphy lowered her own Individual Pursuit national record by more than two seconds at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Roubaix, France today.

The record now stands at 3:27.490 for 3,000 meters on the indoor velodrome and saw her finish in sixth place.

Murphy was a member of the Women's Team Pursuit Squad along with Mia Griffin, Emily Kay and Alice Sharpe that finished fifth in a new national record on Thursday.

Murphy's team-mate Mia Griffin produced a superb ride to finish eighth in a time of 3:34.713.

Both Murphy and Griffin have gone from strength to strength, with Murphy improving on her 15th place finish at the 2020 Track Cycling World Championships in the same event.

Earlier today, Emily Kay and Alice Sharpe partnered for the Women's Madison and put in a great effort in heat 1 but were unfortunate not to book themselves a place in the final.

Ireland's championship draws to a close today.
