Conor Brines flew off today to compete for Larne SC in the Scottish Nationals over the next 5 days.
Conor has had a fantastic season so far and hoes to bring the curtain down with a few more record breaking performances.
Over the week he will be ometing in the 50, 100 & 200 FLY and 50 FREE
We will be updating this post with his results as they happen
A solid start to the meet on Day 1 with the 200Fly Con or posted a time of 2:10.59 placing him 18th and in the B final
Next up the 50 Fly
After a slight mishap on start of his 50 fly meaning the heat swim had to be a lot more of an effort than we would have expected, Conor qualified for B final in a time of 25.6
The evening swim went much more to plan with Conor producing a much more commanding swim to clock 24.19 and a win. The time was good enough to have picked up bronze in the A final.
This was also another Ulster Senior Record as Conor’s breakthrough season continues to impress.
Tomorrow the 50 free
After the excitement of yesterday this morning was a fun event for Conor, just the 50 free. A good heat swim saw a personal best performance but no progression to the final.
Big day tomorrow with the 100 Fly so an early night and some rest.
The last day of the meet and the main event. The heat swim of the 100 fly was a best morning swim and the time of 54.6 indicated that maybe there was some fast times to come.
The final, wow what a swim, 53.81 a new Ulster Senior Record and just outside the Irish record and the Scottish open gold!!!
An absolutely fantastic way to round offor what has been a phenomenal year in the pool for Conor.
Well done and here’s looking forward to an exciting next 18 months.
