Irish 200m record for Phil Healy

To set an Irish Senior record in athletics is a major achievement known to a very small number of athletes each year, so when Phil Healy set a new record in the 100m in June it was a major achievement. However to set a new record in the 200m last Monday night was in lots of ways even more special and unique. To hold the 100m and 200m national records is a rare feat in itself, but what makes the 200m record so special was that it was done in the CIT Track.
This was the same track where Phil first wore the Bandon AC colours in the West Cork Championships and the County Juveniles a decade or so ago. So to now compete against a top class international line up as the fastest Irish woman over 100m and 200m is an incredible journey and on hand on Monday night to witness this as well as numerous members of Bandon AC were Phil’s parents, her coach Shane plus Bandon AC president and one of the founders of the club, Billy Good.

Congratulations Phil.
