Andrew Meegan from Aer Lingus SC broke Steven Manley’s seven-year-old 1500 metre Freestyle Short Course record on Sunday in the Berlin leg of the World Cup series.

Finishing in a time of 15mins 13.53 seconds 22-year-old Meegan took almost four seconds off the previous record.

Coincidentally Meegan swam in the race when Manley set his record at the Irish National Short Course Championships in Lisburn in 2005.

Meegan now holds the Irish Long Course and Short Course records for 800 metre & 1500 metre Freestyle.
