Having eclipsed Derval O'Rourke's long standing 100m hurdle record last year, Sarah Lavin’s record breaking form has clearly continued into 2024.

There was a time where going sub eight seconds in the 60m hurdles would have been the goal, but having hit that in all six of her World Indoor Tour races so far this year, the Limerick woman is ever striving to reach new heights.


27th January - Kazakhstan

With the Christmas break surpassed and preseason under her belt, Sarah Lavin’s record breaking form of 2024 got underway at the World Indoor Tour meet in Kazakhstan.

Here the Emerald A.C athlete set a new PB right from the off, securing a time of 7.93 in the semi final.

She then went on to better that in the final, clocking a 7.91 and picking up a bronze medal for her efforts.


That time also sees Lavin edge ever closer to another O'Rourke record that has stood since 2006, a whopping 7.84.

30th January- Czech Republic

Onto the Indoor Gala in Ostrava, Czech Republic then and Lavin was once again on form.

There she ran her semi final in 7.95 seconds, going on to hit 7.93 in the final.

With that showing she once again picked up third place and a bronze medal, beaten to the line only by Nadine Visser of the Netherlands, with a time of 7.93, and Pia Skrzyszowska of Poland, with a time of 7.82.

6th February - Poland

Lavin’s most recent outing then saw her close out the World Indoor Tour Gold meet in Torun, Poland with another bronze medal.

She ran a 7.98 in the semi final, before shaving 0.6 of a second off in the final with a 7.92.

That secured her a third place finish, with Visser once again nabbing first place, this time with a 7.80, and Skrzyszowska in second, just 0.1 seconds behind her.
