O'Sullivan in good form in Ireland

 At AAI Indoor Games some fast women's Race Walking took place.

Ireland's 2003 World 20km silver medallist Gillian O´Sullivan achieved a very good 12:32.04 at the 3000m distance. Close behind was compatriot Olive Loughnane (12:35.30).

O´Sullivan, 30, the 2003 overall winner of the IAAF Race Walking Challenge, is the holder of the World best for this event with 11:35.34 (in Belfast, 2003).

Slovakian walker Zuzana Malikova who with 12:37.84 came third, made a good attack on the national record of Zuzana Zemkova 12:34.31 which has been in place since 1993. Malikova competed in Nenagh on her way to Portugal for a warm weather training camp.
