Shane Ryan continued his excellent form with a fourth win at the International Swimming League in Hungary this morning while Darragh Greene made his debut at the league with the London Roar.
Ryan made it four wins from four races in the 50m Backstroke as he touched home in 23.10, tying with Tokyo Frog Kings Takeshi Kawamoto. The 26-year-old also helped his Toronto team-mates to a third place (3:25.56) finish in the 4x100m Medley Relay, leading off with a Backstroke leg of 50.50.
The Titans finished the first day of Match 9 in fourth place with 155 points while Energy Standard lead with a score of 300.5. All four teams in this match have already secured their places in the semi-finals and return to action tomorrow, November 10th, from 9am.
For the London Roar, Darragh Greene made his debut in the 200m Breaststroke, replacing Olympic Champion Adam Peaty for the match. Clocking 2:07.73, his second fastest time ever in the event, the National Centre Dublin swimmer was just .13 outside of his Irish Record (2:07.60) finishing seventh. Just 30 minutes later, the 25-year-old was back in the pool for the 50m Breaststroke where he finished sixth in 26.96. Ending the day, Greene helped his London team-mates to a fifth place (3:25.68) finish in the 4x100m Medley Relay splitting 57.88 in the Breaststroke leg.
London Roar were third after the first day of racing in Match 10 and will return tomorrow with Darragh Greene racing the 100m Breaststroke. Like Ryan’s Toronto Titans, Roar have already confirmed their place in this weekend’s semi-finals.
