Ireland’s Nadia Power continues to surpass expectations with an impressive third-place finish at the final World Indoor Tour in Madrid.
Power had recently broken the Irish indoor record on two separate occasions and there were no signs of a dip in form during her race in Madrid today.
The Dubliner produced a time of 2:01.55 in the 800m to finish in third place behind the winner, Habitam Alemu (Ethiopia) and the runner-up, Esther Guerrero Puigdevall (Spain).
It was Power’s second best 800m indoor performance and her third fastest over the distance.
One of Irish athletics biggest prospects, Power also finished second overall in the World Indoor Tour standings (based on points gathered throughout the World Tour).
She had moved into an Olympic qualification place prior to today’s event and her Olympic spot continues to look more secure each time she takes to the track.
All eyes will now turn to the European Indoor Athletics Championships for Power, as she returns home to Ireland following her exploits in Spain.
