Irish Open Championships – Day 1

A fantastic start to the main meet of the season for Irish Swimmers looking to qualify for squads and Major European and World competitions.

Our 5-Lisburn swimmers for today were Paul, Daniel, Nathan, Jamie and Jack from our NSS, supported by Martin our Head Coach.

We could not ask for any more as all five boys achieved PBs in the heats, and places in finals. Daniel also set a new club record for the 400m Freestyle.

The first race of the finals was the 400m Freestyle where Jack, Daniel and Nathan were competing in the Open Final.

Daniel beat his new record from earlier, and narrowly missed breaking the magic 4 minute barrier with a time of 4:00.05, winning a silver medal and a new club record.

Jack came in 6th place and Nathan came in 9th place beating his earlier time.

Swimming the 100 breaststroke, Paul C won the junior final
with a new PB.

In the 50 fly Junior final, Jamie A swam a strong race to finish in second place beating his entry time with a new PB.

Good luck for tomorrow! #GoLisburn
