Day 1 saw 15 of the 19 strong team from Trojan competing in individual and relay events. There were individual semi-finals for Andrea and Leo in the 50 breast, for Sean D in the 100 back and a B final for Laura Grindle in the 200 fly. Katie Garrity was in the fastest heat of the 800 free, coming home with the Irish bronze medal. She was reserve for the 200 free and went on to swim the 200 fly final. Andrea was unlucky not to progress to the final of the 50 breast, coming in 10th but restricted from the final as four external swimmers had already qualified. (Andrea swims for Malta and is classed as an external swimmer.) All relay teams competed in the finals, the girls? teams (Jasmine, Laura , Cara, Sorcha, Sasha, Zofja, Lucy and Mia ) both qualifying from the heats and each going faster than in the morning.
Well done all, a great start to the weekend- go Trojan !
