BALLINEEN Bullet Phil Healy is through to the final of the European Indoor Championship on Saturday.
The Corkonian came first in her semi-final in a time of 52.41, reaching her first major final, where she'll be a contender to medal, even if she told RTÉ Sport "getting in the final is a bonus".
"I’m absolutely buzzing. It should give me a good lane in the final hopefully.
"I’m buzzing. This is my first senior major final. I've been in Universities finals, but to come out here in the Indoors and qualify for a final, I'm buzzing."
Sporting lockdown hasn't slowed the progress of Healy, who has made major strides across the last two years.
"Getting in the final is a bonus. As Paul Robinson said, 'when there’s no pressure on, you’re dangerous'.
"I’m going to go out there and give it my all and I'm just thrilled to be in the final.
"But it’s not over yet, just because I got to the final. I’ll be going out there and giving it everything I have."
Earlier on Friday, Healy powered her way into the European Indoor Athletics 400m semi-finals, after setting a blistering pace in Poland.
The Bandon AC runner's time of 52 seconds came within one-hundredth of her 400m personal best and saw her cross the line ahead of champion Lea Sprunger.
