Swimming: O'Sullivan adds double to Nationals gold haul

NIAMH O'Sullivan finished off the National Short Course Championships in some style at Leisureland in Galway.

Having already bagged two golds in the first two days of competition, the Kerry woman claimed another two golds last night.

The 19-year-old was a second quicker than Bethany Carson as she won the 200m butterfly in 2:17.74 and she produced another very impressive performance of power and technique to take the 400m individual medley in 4:50.91.

Carson won the 100m freestyle in 57.22 ahead of Galway's Dairne Ryan (57.69), who gave the local fans plenty to cheer as she took gold in the 200m freestyle.
