Seven members of the elite performance squad travelled to Dublin last weekend for the Dave McCullagh Memorial meet which incorporated the Celtic tri-nations meet. The tri-nations meet is an annual event between Scotland, Ireland and Wales which incorporates the full Olympic programme of events. Alisdair Stirling had been selected to represent Scotland in the 50m and 100m Freestyle, while the other six swimmers were there to represent the club.

It was a well run meet, in a great facility and we were warmly welcomed by the organisers. Results were as follows:

Robbie Renwick 100m freestyle A final 00:51.1 1st  
Robbie Renwick 200m freestyle A final 01:50.9 1st

Mark Deans 400m Freestyle B final 04:19.6 3rd  
Jamie McKinley 100m freestyle B final 00:55.0 4th  
Stephen Lamb 100m butterfly B final 01:02.4 6th  
Mark Deans 200m backstroke B final 02:26.8 9th  

The aim of the meet was for the elite performance swimmers to race tough while still in full training. I set the swimmers the target of racing hard in the heats to get a second swim in either an A or B final, and then coming back a few hours later and swimming faster in the finals. We achieved this aim, with 100% of swims faster in the finals than in the heats which shows the mental and physical toughness that training can bring.
