Swim Ireland – Ryan Cracks Another National Record in China
2 anos ago 0
World 50m Backstroke Bronze medallist Shane Ryan continued his record-breaking form in the semi-final of the 100m Freestyle at the World Short Course Swimming Championships in China today. Despite swimming a new Irish Record, Ryan missed out on the final, finishing in 12^th place overall.
The 24-year-old obliterated the previous Irish record of 47.84 in this morning’s heats, touching in 46.97 seconds, he then lowered that once again to 46.93 in the semi-final to make it his fifth individual and a relay record so far this week.
Yesterday Ryan announced to RTE that he would be returning to Ireland to train full time in January, speaking about that announcement Swim Ireland National Performance Director Jon Rudd commented “Following Shane’s performances at the 2018 European Championships in Glasgow, we had a lengthy meeting with him to discuss how we could convert his success in 50m Backstroke swimming to that of the Olympic 100m distance with Tokyo 2020 just around the corner. With the coaching team and support practitioners that we now have within the National Centre (Dublin), we very much have a performance centre which is as good as any in the world, particularly when you look at the combined resource and expertise within the Swim Ireland Performance team and the Sport Ireland Institute. Shane recognised this quite readily. I know what Olympic medal talent looks like – and it looks like Shane. He just needs the day-to-day attention to detail, individualisation and resource to turn that talent into a podium
prospect. And so over recent months we’ve all been putting our ducks in a row as to how this will work for him and us – and we’re delighted to say that Shane will be a full-time member of the NCD set up from January 2019 right through into the Games itself. It means that we have the vast majority of our potential Olympians under one roof and gaining the best support and delivery that Ireland has to offer each and every day. We’ve always believed that no one or programme can or would care for an international Irish athlete better than a home Irish programme as our National Centre agenda and mandate is very clear and aligned with those of both Sport Ireland and the Olympic Federation of Ireland. To have all of the potential members of the Male 400m Medley relay training together each day is also a massive plus for us. This will galvanise them further as a team and they will go into their primary Olympic qualification opportunity at the 2019 World Championships in Korea as a stronger and more
resolute force because of this. We’re delighted to be offering this opportunity to Shane and in turn, delighted to be doing this for Team Ireland”
Earlier today Ryan was also part of the Ireland men’s 4x50m Medley Team that set another Irish Record. Ryan, with Conor Ferguson, Darragh Greene and Brendan Hyland were impressive touching in 1:35.05, knocking .58 off the previous record of 1:35.63 set at the 2017 European Championships. The time left the team in 10^th place overall and confident going into the 4x100m version of the event tomorrow where they will look to break a longstanding Irish Record of 3:45.66 set in 2001.
Speaking about tomorrow’s swim Ryan said ‘I always love relays. It’s so much fun and you never know what could happen. We have a great relay that could really do some damage. If we hit everything right we will be in the top 8 and get a second swim.’
Darragh Greene also competed individually in the 50m Breaststroke this morning, after a 200m Breaststroke Irish Record on Thursday, the 23-year-old set another personal best time at the event touching in 27.43.
As well as tomorrow’s relay Niamh Coyne will swim her final event of the World Championships, she goes in the 200m Breaststroke heats.
Jack McMillan continued his record-breaking week in Sheffield at the Swim England Winter Championships earlier today. McMillan broke the 100m Freestyle Irish Record in 48.37, knocking Gerry Quinn’s 2016 time of 49.13 from the books. McMillan will look to lower that time in tonight’s final.
