Sonia's win celebrated

Sonia 5k

ALL finishers in Saturday's Sonia 5km in Dun Laoghaire (7.30) will receive a special replica medal of the gold medal Sonia O'Sullivan won for the 5000m at the World Track and Field Championships in Gothenburg exactly 20 years ago.

Her victory that day made Sonia Ireland's first ever women's world athletics champion and firmly established her as an Irish sporting legend.

Saturday's race starts and finishes in Dun Laoghaire Harbour, taking in a loop around Dublin Bay.

Leading the entry is, of course, the legendary Sonia herself.
