Limerick’s Sarah Lavin will spearhead the Ireland team at this weekend’s World Indoor Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Emerald AC star will compete in the 60m hurdles at the prestigious event.

Lavin will travel on the back of a string of outstanding performances, most recently equalling her personal best of 7.91 seconds on her way to claiming her sixth national indoor 60m hurdles title at the National Indoor Championships.

Afterwards she commented: “I’d have loved to have seen a 7.90 or 7.89, but a 7.91 at home and to continue my consistent run heading into a World Championships is a good place to be.”
