Ireland have secured a fifth medal at the European Youth Olympics in Hungary and Sarah Healy delivered it in some style.

Healy, who goes to the Holy Child secondary school in Killiney, had over three seconds to spare over her closest rival and a personal best time of 4:19.85 in the 1,500m.

She hit the front at the beginning of the final lap and ground her rivals into submission with an amazing display of stamina.
