Mona McSharry of Ireland continued to turn heads at the 2017 European Junior Championships, setting her second National Record of the week in the 200 breast.

While the 16-year-old finished second overall in the women’s 200 breast with a time of 2:27.44, her time eclipsed the previous Irish National Record of 2:28.75 by more than a second. The previous record was posted at the 2016 European Championships by Fiona Doyle in the semi-finals of the 200 breast.

McSharry’s 200 breast splits:

  • 32.83, 36.95, 38.23, 39.43 = 2:27.44

In addition to today’s national record in the 200 breast, McSharry also downed the 50 breast national record on day one of the European Junior Championships.
