Ireland’s Brendan Hyland continued his fantastic form on day two at the FINA World Swimming Championships in China with his second Irish Record in as many days.

 Swimming in heat 5 of the 100m Butterfly, the National Centre Dublin swimmer touched in 51.54 to knock .66 off Conor Brines’ 2016 record of 52.20. Hyland won the heat to finish just outside the semi-final placings.

 Yesterday, the 24-year-old from Tallaght took over 3 seconds off his own 200m Butterfly Record to place 10th overall.

 Tomorrow, Conor Ferguson and Darragh Greene return to the pool with Shane Ryan making his championship debut. Both Ferguson and European Bronze medallist Ryan compete in the 50m Backstroke. Ferguson is the current record holder in the event in 23.84 seconds. Greene competes in the 200m Breaststroke heats.
