5 meses ago 0

Darragh Greene was the star of the show as Day 2 of the Irish Open Swimming Championships took place at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.

The National Centre Dublin swimmer, who was Ireland’s first World Championships qualifier yesterday, in the 100m Breaststroke, took down Andrew Bree’s 11-year-old Irish Senior Record in 2:10.05. That time, an Irish Record, Championship Record and under the consideration time for World Championships again. Bree, who had set the record in the event in the semi-final of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, was on hand to present the record certificate to Greene this evening.

Speaking after the race Greene commented ‘I would have been happy with a pb, the record is a huge bonus, especially an 11-year-old record. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do in the summer now’

Rio 2016 Olympian Shane Ryan and his National Centre Dublin team mates Jordan Sloan and Robbie Powell went head to head in the 100m Freestyle Final. Ryan took the National Title for the second-year clocking 49.28, Sloan claimed silver in 49.71 while Powell completed the podium in 50.03. The top four combined times were also under the consideration time for the 4x100m Freestyle Relay at World Championships.

Niamh Coyne doubled up on her gold medals in the Women’s 200m Breaststroke to take the National Title. Scotland’s European, World and Commonwealth Games medallist Hannah Miley was first home in 2:29.40 just ahead of Coyne who clocked 2:30.09.

Miley returned to action in the final event of the night, the 400m Individual Medley and took a second commemorative gold medal in 4;47.63. Templeogue’s Ellen Walshe claimed the National Title in 4:51.04. Ards’ Amelia Kane claimed the silver medal in 4:45.70 and joined Eoin Corby in going under the consideration times for both European and World Junior Championships.
