Olympic hopefuls shine at National Athletics Championships in Dublin

Rhasidat Adeleke's victory was the highlight on the second day of the 123.ie National Athletics Championships at Morton Stadium in Santry.

Adeleke now has all Irish records from 60m to 400m, both indoors and out, after she broke the Irish 100m record in a time of 11.13 seconds.

The Tallaght native claimed the record from Sarah Lavin, who finished second in the race in 11.37 seconds, 0.24 seconds behind the new national record holder, who took 0.14 off Lavin's mark set in September last year.

There was a blanket finish for third place but Molly O'Reilly got the nod over 2017 European junior Champion Gina Akpe-Moses, with the pair separated by only one-thousandth of a second.

While the 100m race went as expected, there was some drama in both the men's and women's 400m.

Jack Raftery was the surprise winner of the men's 400m crown, running down a tiring Chris O'Donnell in the home straight. O'Donnell went out hard but Raftery, on his outside, looked dangerous
