O'Sullivan wins 800m race in Victoria, Australia

It sounds like a headline from 20 years ago but this time around, it's Sonia O'Sullivan's daughter Sophie who is on a winning streak. At some recent Schools Championships in Victoria, Sophie has been winning a number of races in the U15 category.

Sophie O’Sullivan   
High Jump      1.50m  4th
800m        2:15.36     GOLD
1500m      4:41.60     GOLD

Back in October, Sophie who runs for Ballymore-Cobh AC when she is in Ireland posted these results...

The video clip shows Sophie winning the Girls U15 800m race in 2m 15s. She is in purple and leads from early on.
