We had six swimmers attend this gala in the National Aquatic Centre on Saturday last. Swimmers who attended were Aoibhín, Rebekah, Adam, Darragh, Edvardas and Sean. The races were long
course which means the swimmers are in the long pool 50m as opposed to 25m. We had a mixed bag of results, with the swim of the day going to 14 year old Sean Greenan who swam with a big
personal best time to claim a bronze medal in the 800free race. This was a great end to a long day for Sean who also achieved nice PBS in his other swims. Darragh was close to medalling on a few
occasions with him placing 4th in 100brs, 4th in 50brs and 4th in 100fly events.
Some of our swimmers achieved new personal best times and for some it was their first attempt at long course in certain
events which is always a learning experience. We know the swimmers will work hard to build on this experience as we go onwards through the season.
Well done everyone and thanks to Coach Pearse for attending on the day.
