Kelly Proper is one of four Irish athletes who benefited from the IAAF quota system to qualify for the World Championships. Coming agonisingly close to the qualifying standard (23.20) this year, Proper’s season’s best of 23.24 was good enough to receive an invite to the championships. She has proven to be championship performer, setting her 200m personal best at the European championships in Zurich last year (video below).
