Firing up for Glasgow International

30 May 2019

Katie Shanahan
Katie Shanahan took home 6 Junior Titles racing in her APEX Predator Speed.

Last weekend our UK F-Teamers headed back to Tollcross International Swimming Centre, just weeks after firing up for British Champs, this time going head to head at the Glasgow International Swim Meet.

Aimee Willmott
Aimee went Alba Wild at Glasgow International.

Aimee Willmott went two for two as she took gold in both the 200 and 400 IM. The 400 IM was particularly impressive for her, touching the wall 7 seconds clear of the rest of the field. Aimee earned a massive 845 FINA points to claim the third best performance overall.

Glasgow's very own Katie Shanahan dominated once again in the junior category claiming 6 junior titles in the 200 and 400 IM, 100 and 200 Back as well as both the 200 and 400 Free events.

University of Edinburgh's Kathryn Greenslade topped the podium in the 200 Back winning in a time of 2:13.49. She also added 100 Free bronze to her medal tally. Lily Boseley managed to get the upper hand on Kathryn in the 100 Back as she pipped her at the wall to finish 3rd in a time of 1:02.93 .

Mona McSharry
Mona McSharry back in action, breaking Irish records once again at Glasgow!

While Mona McSharry missed out on Irish team qualification earlier this year due to illness, her performance at Glasgow shows she is back and ready to rule the pool again! In the 50 Free she earned silver before swimming to victory in the 50 Breast with a time of 31.57. The 50 Fly was also a massive event for Mona, winning gold and adding another Irish senior record to her name with a time of 26.92. This takes her Irish record count to a 9 senior records. Her time also makes her the 2nd Irish female ever to dip under the 27-second threshold in the 50 Fly. In her main event, the 100 Breast, Mona also took home gold in a time of 1:09.27, whilst one of our newest F-Teamers, Katie Goodburn, came home in 8th.

Tain Bruce? width=
Tain's toe fell victim to a lane rope during the 100 Fly.

Fly queen Tain Bruce made a short, yet sweet appearance at the Glasgow International Meet. Powering to the wall in a time of 59.22 Tain won the 100 Fly, but at a cost! Unfortunately Tain broke her baby toe during the event and had to withdraw from the rest of the meet.

To round out the event we also had City of Oxford's Emily Ford who got racing in the 50 and 100 Back and managed to finish 7th and 10th respectively.

It's great to see our F-Teamers racing strong in the lead up to major international events like World Champs, World Junior Champs and European Juniors!
