The Lisburn swimmers Jamie, Jodie, Nathan and Rachel started the day off well by claiming the bronze medal in the 4 x 100 mixed medley relay.
Daniel Wiffen claimed his 3rd individual medal in the 400m freestyle finishing in 3rd place with a time of 4:08.72.
The final event of the weekend saw Rachel Bethel add to her 200m Freestyle Gold with a win in the 400m event in 4:18.41.
Highlights from Dave McCullagh Championships Day 2
In the women’s 200m Freestyle Final Lisburn’s Rachel Bethel was impressive to win gold in 2:02.47 ahead of Victoria Catterson (2:04.71) and Kilkenny’s Maria Godden (2:05.76).
After just winning the B-group final for the 200-freestyle, Daniel Wiffen had a very tight 800m-freestyle race, which was only decided in the last 50m where Finn Mckeever just had little more energy to win the gold ahead of Daniel who secured the silver medal.
It was also nice to see some of our National Junior Girls competing in the open competition freestyle relay. It was good so see a number of personal best times thr0ugh the competition and a number of our swimmers represented in A finals.
