Emerald AC's Sarah Lavin
EMERALD AC’s Sarah Lavin won 100m hurdle Gold at the National Championships last weekend at the Morton Stadium in Santry. The Irish international star has been hit by injury in recent times, however a time of 13.62 was enough to secure another title for the former Castletroy College student.
The women’s side of the competition had many highlights including two Limerick athletes who medalled in the 100m hurdle finals – Sarah Lavin (now running with UCD) won the race and Lily Ann O’Hora of Dooneen AC securing bronze in the event.
Both athletes are great ambassadors for the sport and Lily also volunteers with her club in Limerick in coaching juvenile athletes.
The relief of coming through a metatarsal injury is plain to see on the video above. Lavin, coached by Noelle Morrissey in UL, now heads to the World University Games ( known as the Universiade) which is to be hosted by the city of Taipei, Taiwan from the 19 – 30 August.
