Rhasidat Adeleke beats two world winners to set the best time with the help of the wind.

It was a busy weekend for Irish sports on the world stage, even though it’s still early in the season.

Rhasidat Adeleke beats two world winners to set the best time with the help of the wind

Rhasidat Adeleke ran the fastest 100-meter race by an Irish woman ever to win the race at the Texas Relays in Austin.

That athlete from Tallaght stopped the clock in an amazing 10.84 seconds, but it won’t count for the record because the following wind reading (+3.5 m/s) was much higher than the allowed limit (+2.0 m/s).

Adeleke did beat two world winners, though: Dina Asher-Smith from Britain and Julien Alfred from St. Lucia.

At the 2019 World Indoors in Glasgow, Alfred won the 60-meter race, which came as a surprise. Asher-Smith won the 200-meter race.

Sarah Lavin holds the Irish 100-meter record with a time of 11.27 seconds. Adeleke should be able to catch her at some point this season.

Lawrence Roy of City of Lisburn ran an acceptable 11.71 in the third heat of the 100m.

Early on, English was at the back of the pack, but the Finn Valley clubman snuck past the other runners on the home stretch to finish seventh, just behind Algerian winner Slimane Moula, who finished in 1:44:55.

With a time of 13:25.37, Brian Fay was ten seconds slower than his Xiamen time in the 5000m. He came in 13th place, behind Selemon Barega of Ethiopia (12:55.68).

Kate O’Connor, who won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games, came in second place at the 37th International Multi-Stars Heptathlon in Brescia, Italy.

Taliyah Brooks of the United States got 6330 points, which put the Dundalk all-rounder in second place. Katelyn Adel of Switzerland came in third.

O’Connor went up on Sunday, from sixth place the night before.

At home, all eyes were on the National Road Relays in Dublin on Sunday, where northwest teams did well. Three guys from the City of Derry Spartans won the O50 race. Their names are Declan Reed, Colin Roberts, and Ronan Healy.

Inishowen came in second place, thanks in large part to a great performance by star player Pauric McKinney.

In the O50 women’s relay, Finn Valley came in third. The senior titles went to Clonliffe Harriers for the men and Dundrum South Dublin for the women.

It looks like a world record is set every weekend. Emmanuel Wanyonyi, who is good at the 800-meter race, broke the world road mile record with a time of 3:54.56 on Saturday at the adizero Road to Records event in Herzogenaurach, Germany.

The 19-year-old Kenyan beat the previous world record of 3:56.13, which was set in Riga last October by Hobbs Kessler of the United States. This time, Kessler had to settle for second place with a time of 3:56.18.
