Shane Ryan and Brendan Hyland were the highlight of day four of the Irish Open Swimming Championships in Dublin, the pair extinguishing the 100m Backstroke and 200m Individual Medley Irish and Championship Records. Ryan, also well under consideration for the FINA World Swimming Championships in South Korea.

A blistering swim from Ryan saw him take two tenths of a second off his previous best (53.85) to claim a second National Title this week. The 25-year-olds time of 53.73 is the third fastest time in the world this year.

The National Centre Dublin swimmer was delighted with the result commenting ‘I’m very very happy with the time, it’s the fastest I’ve swam it in 6 years, I was 19 when. It felt comfortable, I didn’t die, that’s something I’ve been working on with my coach, I know I can be faster.’

Brendan Hyland, having broken the 200m Butterfly Irish Record on Friday, took his second National Title and second Irish Record in as many days in the 200m Individual Medley. An outstanding swim from the National Centre Dublin swimmer saw him take over half a second off James Brown’s 2017 Record of 2:02.09. Hyland clocked 2:01.52 for gold ahead of Bangor’s Jack McMillan (2:02.98) and National Centre Limerick’s Cillian Melly (2:03.84).

Breaststroke aces Darragh Greene and Niamh Coyne completed National Title hat-tricks across the 50, 100m and 200m events. Greene added a Championship Record of 27.50 in tonight’s 50m event to a 200m Irish and Championship Record while Coyne touched in 31.91 for her third title.

Danielle Hill added to 50m Backstroke Gold with a win in the 100m event. The Larne swimmer, who set a national record in the 50m event on Friday, touched in 1:02.09, over a second ahead of silver medallist Sophie Maguire (1:03.55) of Drogheda.

Lisburn’s Daniel Wiffen continued his impressive form doubling up on his 800m National Title from Friday in the 1500m event. Wiffen, who set a new Irish Junior Record in the 800m event, touched in 15:53.03 to dip under the consideration times for European and World Juniors once again.

British Olympian Hannah Miley collected her fourth commemorative gold of the meet in the 200m Freestyle Final. Miley held off Bangor’s Rachel Bethel touching in 2:02.44 while Bethel collected her second National Title in 2:03.45, adding to a 400m Freestyle Title from Wednesday.
