Daniel Wiffen has picked up his second gold medal at the European Short Course Swimming Championships in sensational, record-breaking fashion.
The 22-year-old secured the 1,500m freestyle title in style - his winning time of 14.09.11 was the third fastest effort in history and just outside the world record of 14.06.88 as well as being a personal best and an Irish record.
The performance confirmed his status as one of the most promising swimmers in the world. On Tuesday, he won the gold medal in the 400m freestyle, setting a new Irish record.
Adding to the history of the race, Ireland were represented by twins for the first time in a European final as Daniel's brother Nathan made his first final. Nathan swam a personal-best time of 14:38.75 to finish eighth.
Daniel modestly said the highlight of the final was having his twin Nathan in the race.
"It was fantastic, and it was a great achievement for him to reach a final in his first championship,” he said.
Daniel and Nathan will be back in the pool tomorrow in the heats of the 800m freestyle, an event in which Daniel is the European record-holder.
During their Lower Sixth year in Saint Patrick’s Grammar School, Armagh, the twins travelled to Romania as part of the SAR Group. Every morning, before commencing a long days’ work, they both diligently trained in the swimming pool of the next door hotel at 6.30am. It certainly has paid off.
Well done, boys, from all in SAR.

Well done to past pupil Daniel Wiffen!

Good luck next week in the 1500m.

Another record broken but missed out on securing Northern Ireland's first Commonwealth Games swimming medal by an agonising 0.13 seconds in the men's 400m freestyle final.
