BREAKING: Women's 100m Finalists Confirmed for Irish Nationals

June 30, 2024

This morning's senior women's 100m heats took place, and now the finalists and lane numbers have been confirmed. This is one of the most highly anticipated events of this weekend's Irish National Track and Field Championships. With the upcoming Olympics, all eyes are on Rhasidat Adeleke and Sarah Lavin as they compete for national glory.

Rhasidat Adeleke, the Paris-bound sprinter and current championship record holder (CR: 11.29), is the favorite after posting a solid heat time of 11.54. With speculation in the press about Adeleke targeting the national record (NR: 11.27) held by Sarah Lavin, she is in prime position to make a significant mark in the final. Sarah Lavin, who posted a heat time of 11.51, is expected to be Adeleke's main competition. Gina Akpe-Moses, returning to Irish competition after four years, showcased her potential with a heat time of 11.87, making her a strong candidate for a podium finish. Molly Scott, coming back well from her terrible injury in 2022, posted a respectable heat time of 11.84 and is in contention for a medal. Adeleke’s Olympic preparation and Lavin’s impressive form position them as the top contenders for gold and silver, with Akpe-Moses and Scott likely to compete strongly for the bronze in this highly anticipated final.
