Ireland’s Mona McSharry and Clare Cryan set new Irish Records over the weekend, as the duo continue preparations for the World Aquatics Championships in July, and Irish swimming continues to deliver exceptional results at the highest level.

McSharry had an impressive weekend, competing at the Glasgow International Swim Meet. On Sunday she set a new Irish Senior Record in the 200m Breaststroke on the final day of racing.

The 22-year-old posted an impressive time of 2:24.50, going under 2:25 for the first time, to break her 2021 record of 2:25.08, set in the heats at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Earlier in the weekend, McSharry placed first in the 100m Breaststroke in 1:06.15, just one tenth of a second off her Irish record of 1:06.04 set at the Irish Open Championships in April.

Diver Clare Cryan’s record came in the 3M Springboard at the British Diving Championships, where the 29-year-old scored 303.15 points, claiming silver, and breaking her previous best score and Irish Record of 300.75 from 2018.

Both McSharry and Cryan will have their first opportunities at qualifying for the Paris Olympic Games at the World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka in July.

At the AP Race London International, Daniel Wiffen claimed gold in the 1500m Freestyle in 14:57.30 and silver in the 400m Freestyle in 3:50.88.

Wiffen’s twin brother Nathan was second in the 1500m Freestyle in 15:45.71. Both will compete in the 800m Freestyle later today.
