City of Belfast swimmers competed at Irish Age Group and Summer Open Championships at the NAC in Dublin last week (20th-24th July) with great success.
Georgia Murray, Ellen ONeill, Florence Tinsley, Emma Montgomery, Alex McCrea, Fionnuala Murtagh, Michael Hewitt and Theo Falls all competed. The team spirit was notably strong which helped them all swim so well. Highlights include…
Alex reached 3 finals…Open age group 50m free finishing 5th amongst the Irish swimmers and the highest ranked in her age group, Age grouped 100 fly and 100m free, winning a bronze medal in 100m fly and finishing 5th in 100 free. Florence just missed out on a place in the 100back final. Both the girls free and medley relay teams finished either 2 or 3rd placed Ulster team in the Open relay relays with some amazing splits- (with three 14 year olds on the teams!) and Michael secured an Ulster Squad time. There were many pbs aswell. Coaches report to follow, but an enormous thank you to our coaches Andrew Bree, Iain Chisholm and Eimear Brown for bringing the season to such a successful close.
