Róisín Ní Riain was the only Irish swimmer in action at the European Championships today fresh from her silver medal success on day one. In a personal best swim Ní Riain powered home to win gold in the 100m breaststroke final. She finished the race in a time of 01:18.00 which was also a personal best for the Limerick native.

Speaking after the final Ní Riain said, “That was a pretty good swim, happy with the time and a great race. I always think the hundred breaststroke is a fun one for me just to get out and race. I love the event so I’m very pleased with that”.
