Great Irish Sports Stars: Sonia O’Sullivan

Olympian, World Champion Runner and Irish Sporting Legend

As a little girl playing with her friends in Cobh, Co. Cork, Sonia O’Sullivan was known as the fastest runner. When she joined a running club and started to win races, she began to dream of the Olympic Games. Through her talent, dedication and her ability to get back up and dust herself down when things went wrong, Sonia went from an ordinary girl who loved to run to an extraordinary world-class athlete.

The story of one of Ireland’s greatest ever athletes – and a dream made real.
