St. Gerard's AC athlete Kate O'Connor broke the Irish Indoor Pentathlon record for the second time in two-weeks on Saturday.

Competing in the Tallinn International Pentathlon in Estonia, O'Connor scored 4150-points in finishing fourth overall. The 17-year-old had only previously set a record of 4108-points,

The performance underlines the precocious talent of the St. Vincent's secondary school student as she prepares to represent Northern Ireland at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April.
