Greta Sets New Irish Record

Past pupil, Greta Streimikyte, set a new Irish record of 4.51.75 during her heat yesterday (Thursday, 8 September 2016) in the T13 1500m race. She finished third in her heat and has now qualified for the final on Saturday. Greta's previous personal best was 4.48.85, placing her fourth in the rankings. Her rise has been magnificent as only last May she took 6 seconds off her then personal best to be second in the world rankings at the time.
