History for Irish relay team at World Short Course Championships

The Irish men's 4x200 metres freestyle relay team wrote themselves into history in Abu Dhabi this morning.

Jack McMillan, Robbie Powell, Finn McGeever and Jordan Sloan produced a superb performance to qualify for the World final at the Shortcourse Swimming Championships.

In doing so, they became the first Irish relay team to make it to a final.

Their time of 7.02.35 was some 21 seconds quicker than the previous national record.

Their final takes place later today (Sunday), as they re-enter the pool shortly before 4pm Irish time.

Hopes are also high for Mona McSharry in the 100 metre breaststroke, her preferred event.

The Sligo woman has already broken four Irish records in other events this week.

But in the breaststroke, she eased her way into the semi-finals with a swim of 1.04.59, which ranked second out of all the participants in the heats.

Niamh Coyne was in the same event and clocked a time of 1.06.44.

Elsewhere today, Danielle Hill booked her place in the semi-finals of the 50 metres backstroke.

Her time of 27.17 saw her advance to the next stage, which is later today at 3.19pm.

Calum Bain set a new personal best of 23.46 in the 50 metre butterfly.
