Sarah Healy is very impressive. Physically she doesn't look as if she has an advantage over the other girls - it looks like she hasn't hit the gym yet and she's not particularly tall. So, I'd say a lot of her advantage is pure talent rather than physically maturing earlier than other girls.
This was just her 2nd race at 3000 and both times she has just raced for the win (here in Gyor she has the 1500 final still to come). Clearly she could go significantly faster at the moment, 8:55 perhaps?
With 2:02 & 4:09 at the shorter distances maybe they're her better distances though.
She started doing light gym work for the first time this season, is still not full time runner (only trains about 30 mpw and does a few sports)
