There was another fantastic weekend for Magheralin twins Daniel and Nathan Wiffen when they represented Lisburn City Swimming Club at the Ulster Age Group Championship in Bangor.

They are becoming a force to be reckoned with across a number of events in the swimming world.

During this swimming meet (8-10 April) they broke three Lisburn City Swimming Club records, achieved two British Age group qualifying times and won four gold, four silver and five bronze medals.

Their increase in speed has been building up all season.

Whilst Daniel was representing Swim Ulster in Sheffield, winning a bronze, silver and gold medal across the three events he competed in, Nathan represented St Patrick’s Grammar School Armagh at the Schools Championship and won three gold medals.

Always having arguments about who is fastest, they went head to head in the 200m fly final in Bangor.

Nathan just scraped through as the winner, but only in that event as Daniel later commented. The boys are due to compete in the Irish Open Championships at the end of the month.

We wish them every success and hope they continue to beat their times and break more club records.
