OConnors 3rd Championship record in a row

26 January 2016

Kate O’Connor continued her excellent late 2015 form into the new year by breaking yet another Pentathlon championship record.

This is the third record she has broken in her last three multi-event competitions (Irish Schools Record in November and Katerina Johnson-Thompson’s Schools International in December).

O’Connor (Dundalk AC) dominated the U18 Girls competition with three personal bests in the 60m Hurdles (9.39) Long Jump (5.63) and most impressively High Jump (1.73). She put the shot 11.30m and finished with a victory in the 800m (2.21.55) to score a personal best total of 3877 points.
