Well done to Euan Macleod Y9 who travelled to Dublin during half term to compete in the Leinster Regional Short Course Swimming Championships. Euan was competing in the 16 and under age group, even though he is still 13 for three more weeks.
He came away with not only impressive results but also a great experience. He swam in the 50 backstroke, 100 backstroke, 200 backstroke, 200IM and 400IM events. Euan made the final of all events, winning gold in 50m backstroke and silver medal in 200 back with massive PB’s in both. He also set a great PB in the 100 backstroke heats on Sunday morning.
He swam in the same 50m backstroke heat as Shane Ryan, who is the 50m backstroke World Short Course bronze medallist.
Shane won the senior 50m backstroke championship and Euan won the Junior Championship (16 and under!). Euan is now ranked 5th in the UK for 50m back SC and 6th in UK for 100 back SC.
