When Phil Healy starred in the best comeback of all time featuring the greatest commentary ever

"UCC from the depths of hell."

Phil Healy... What a RUN!

It's hard to tell what was better: the closing stage of the women's 4x400m relay in the IUAA, or the priceless - soon to be iconic - commentary that accompanied it.

The Irish Universities Athletics Association was lit up on Sunday with the most breathtaking finale - possibly of all time.

University College Cork clinched the women's 4x400m - literally from the depths of hell - in a race looked to be sown up by UCD.

And then UL.

Michelle Finn of University of Limerick started the thriller in the final leg when she put on the afterburners and looked to be storming to victory.

Then CIT came. Then UCC came.

It was ridiculous, especially considering where Phil Healy came from.

50 seconds out from the finishing line, Healy's efforts were admirable.

"UCC look good in fifth and look like they will pass out DCU into fourth place."

By the time the finishing line was reached, Healy's efforts were historic.

Fast forward to 3 minutes 5 seconds for the incredible final leg.
