MONA McSharry lowered the Irish 100m breaststroke record again yesterday evening – just hours after hitting the Olympic qualifying time in the event.
The Marlin’s Swimming Club star hit the qualifying time with a new PB and national record of 1:06.97 on Tuesday morning.

McSharry, the former World Junior champion, needed to hit 1:07.07 at the Irish Olympic Team Trials.
For good measure, the University of Tennessee student broke the record again in the semi-final, going to a superb 1:06.29.
McSharry will go under starter’s orders again for this evening’s final.
The Grange, Co Sligo native is also to compete in the 200m breaststroke later in the week.Tags:
