Dolphin Swimming Club

 

Dolphin Swimming Club Take 18 Titles

At the recent Limerick Invitational Meet, Dolphin Swimmers were in blistering form as they swam away with no less than 18 titles. Held at the St. Endas Sports Complex in Limerick Dolphin also racked up 9 second place and 6 third place positions with no less than 18 other swimmers narrowly missing out on a place on the medals table.

No fewer than 6 club records fell to Sinead Murphy (200 Backcrawl), Richard O Dowling (50 butterfly) and Catriona O Keeffe (50 Backcrawl and 100 Individual Medley), but by far the most dramatic of those was in the women's 200 Medley relay where on their way to winning gold the team consisting of Zoe Williams, Claire Canning, Michelle O Keeffe and Catriona O Keeffe shaved 0.05 off the previous record which had stood for over 12 years. On a high from this they went on 24 hours later to break the 200m Frontcrawl club record by over 2 seconds. This set the ball rolling for what was to be a flood of medals for the club.

For the age group swimmers their next meet is the Munster Championships to be held over the May bank holiday weekend. The senior swimmers move on in 3 weeks time to the long course National Championships being held at the new state of the art multi million Euro 50 metre pool in the University of Limerick from Friday 12th Sunday 14th April. It will be here for the first time since the Lee Baths closed over 16 years ago that Irelands top swimmers will have an opportunity to obtain international qualifying times without having the expense of travelling abroad. This will be one of the last meets for our major stars before the Divisional Championships in June and the National Short Course Championships in July.

For the Dolphins its back to 6am training 6 days per week as usual in preparation for these championship meets.
