Susan Liddle's Dublin Diary: Competition gets us buzzing

During the 2016 Rio Paralympics, Susan Liddle, who volunteers with Scottish Swimming, provided a brilliant daily blog for us, detailing her experiences as a Technical Official at the Games. And we're delighted to announce that for the World Para Swimming European Championships in Dublin, Susan will be doing the same again with her Dublin Diary!

Day 2

SO! That's the first day of competition done and dusted.  It's always a good feeling to get this one under the belt.

Four world records posted in this evening's session, not to mention an outstanding swim from Scott Quin in the SB14 100m breaststroke. To say he was a little pleased was an understatement, 'buzzin' comes to mind.

Things are beginning to settle now that we are beginning to get to know each other and the teamwork is starting to gel in all of the different areas that make a meet a success.

Recap Day 1 here.

After the competition was done for the day, Paul Wilson, Scottish Swimming's Disability Performance Development Manager, bumped into the European Champion himself and grabbed a quick picture...
