Róisín Ní Riain was in the pool again yesterday evening for her second event, the 100m breaststroke final. The Limerick swimmer came agonisingly close to the podium again missing out on a bronze medal by .54 of a second.
Speaking after her swim Róisín said, “It was okay. Obviously, I’m disappointed to miss out on a bronze by so little but I’ve a few more events so hopefully I can build on that.”
Tokyo silver medallist Nicole Turner and 2022 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Barry McClements both take to the pool today. After strong starts, both swimmers finished 5th in their respective finals.
Speaking after her final Turner said, “To be honest I’m really happy with that, I got a bit too excited on the first 50 and then I paid for it on the last 50 meters but that was about as enjoyable as a 200IM gets.”
Róisín Ní Riain is back in the pool tomorrow and looking to build on her silver medal success. She is in the 100m Backstroke Final during tomorrow’s evening session.
