Séan’s Success

We are delighted to announce that Sean O’Riordan, UCC Swimming and Water polo Club member,  Sports Scholarship holder and Olympic-possible Para swimmer, has been selected on the Irish World Championship National team for four events. Last week at the National Championships in the National Aquatic Centre in  Dublin his first swim was the 400m Freestyle-currently his best event. He had done 4:52 last January and needed 4:48 for the Para Worlds . He actually swam 4:44! He trains 15 hours each week with Sunday’s Well SC, with Head Coach Richard Cassidy, and also does additional Power and Flexibility work in the Mardyke Arena. The next target is the Olympic qualifying time of 4:34 !      We are so proud of you Séan, keep up the great work !
