DAY 2 – HEATS
Day 2 saw Kiera Heney’s debut swim at national level, at what a way to start! Seeded 14th in the 12/13 year age group, it was going to need a PB to make it to the evening’s finals. In the first heat, Kiera had to lead from the front and built up her speed and stroke rate to storm the final 10m and deliver a phenomenal PB of 28.14seconds and one of the fastest reaction times of 0.69secs to claim her place in the final in joint 5th place!
Tune in at 7.30pm for Kiera’s scheduled final

DAY 2 - FINALS
Kiera's first national final and an extra-long wait for her 50m free event in the evening's schedule. With what seemed like n o apparent nerves (not so in the gallery for the rest of us!) and Kiera swam yet another explosive PB swim in an incredibly tight race, eventually placing 8th in a time of 28.09 seconds. A great first nationals event and more to follow on Friday in the 100m freestyle.
