O'Rourke sets new hurdles record
Derval O'Rourke
Derval O'Rourke won the world indoor 60m title in March
Derval O'Rourke smashed another 0.07secs off her Irish 100m hurdles record at the IAAF Grand Prix in Helsinki, Finland on Wednesday.

The world indoor 60m hurdles champion clocked 12.85secs to lower the 12.92 mark she set in Lausanne two weeks ago.

Damu Cherry won the race in 12.66secs, the American holding off Nigeria's Josephine Onyia, who clocked 12.78sec.

O'Rourke's progress means she will travel to the European Championships in Gothenburg as a possible medal chance.
