The LEN European Short Course Championships start today in Tollcross, Glasgow and many of our Irish F-Teamers will be stepping up to the blocks. After breaking Irish records at the World Championships in Gwangju earlier this year, Brendan Hyland is looking forward to racing. "I've been improving at each international meet over the last two years so I'm hopeful I'll race well. I want to progress through the rounds and maybe finish the week with something special." Brendan will be racing in the 100m Butterfly, 200m and 400m Individual Medley finishing with the 200m Butterfly on day 4. Teammate Robbie Powell is set to race in the 100m, 200m and 400m Freestyle as well as the men's relays.

Joining him in the freestyle events will be Bangor Swimming Club's Jack McMillan. Jack is the current Irish national record holder for the 400m freestyle having set the record at the Irish Open Swimming Championships in Dublin in March. Jack will also be racing in the 200m Individual Medley. Irish youngster Dan Wiffen will make his senior international debut at the European Short Course Championships. "I'm actually really excited to race and learn, it's also a bonus that the competition is so close to home." The Lisburn City Swimming Club long distance swimmer set a new Irish junior record in the 800m event of the 2019 Irish Swimming Championships, touching in 15:53.03. This week he will be racing in the 400m and 1500m Freestyle events.

Olympian Richard Nagy, who has been swimming with the City of Sheffield since the Rio Olympics, will be pulling on his Slovakian swim cap once again to race in both the 200m and 400m Individual Medley.
