After registering a new 200m butterfly Irish National Record in yesterday’s heats, Brendan Hyland continued his Short Course World Championships journey with another national standard in this morning’s 100m fly sprint.
Splitting 24.07/27.47, the National Centre Dublin athlete produced a morning mark of 51.54 to place 20th overall. That time not only checks-in as Hyland’s personal best, but also hacks .66 off of the previous Irish NR of 52.20 set by Conor Brines 2 years ago.
In yesterday’s 200m fly race, Hyland produced a monster personal best of 1:53.19, hacking over 3 seconds off of his own previous career-fastest and Irish national standard of 1:56.87.
More records may yet fall in Hangzhou for the emerging swimming nation of Ireland, as Conor Ferguson, Shane Ryan and Darragh Greene are all competing tomorrow.
