Through two days of competition at the Irish Short Course National Swimming Championships it is no surprise that Sycerika McMahon is dominating her competition. McMahon had the meet of her life at the European Short Course Championships where she took away the bronze in the 50 breaststroke and broke a total of nine Irish records.
