BIG PB’s as Templeogue have strong Finals Session
The Swimming from the Templeogue Athletes continued to impress on the 3rd night of Finals as these young athletes continued to step up performances from the heats in their key events.
Tonights finals session Opened with a nail biting swim with Laura Gleeson (14) narrowly being pipped for 3rd place in the 100BF but with another substantial PB having taken a further 0.5 seconds off her heat swim to finish the event in 4th place. She’s had 100% PB’s in the meet to date and her first National Level competition.
The Boys Event saw a superb result for both Conor Kenny (12) & Daniel Walsh (12) as both boys produced PB’s from their earlier swims as Walsh finished in 5th overall. Conor Kenny continued his excellent podium form in this event with a SILVER medal performance in a fingertip finish to enhance his overall time and break a benchmark 1:20.00 swim also.
In the Girls 200BC Arianne Courtney (13) was delighted with her swim as she further improved on her heat swim PB to finish in SILVER Medal position and another large 2.5 second improvement on her earlier swim. In the Older Age Group Anna O’Gara (16) produced a superbly controlled effort to improve her PB by some 2.6 seconds on the morning heats to finish in 6th overall.
The TEAM has produced some excellent swims and been a credit to themselves as they’ve supported each other with great energy and smiles all weekend.
