Conor Ferguson and Shane Ryan both failed to make it out the semi-finals of the 100m Backstroke at the European Championships in Glasgow.

Ferguson was placed third in his heat, coming home in a time of 54.61. That left him ninth of the 16 who went forward to the semis. He went on to set a new Irish junior record of 54.38 to finish fifth in the race, ninth overall.

After winning a bronze in the 50m Backstroke on Saturday evening, it was a quick turnaround for Ryan. He came home fourth in the final heat, clocking 54.67 to qualify in 12th spot. 

In the semi, the 24-year-old clocked 54.79 for 15th overall. 

Longford's Darragh Greene finish third in his 200m Breaststroke heat to comfortably advance to the semis, where the 23-year-old took 13th overall in 2:11.36. 

Tomorrow will see Bangor’s Jordan Sloan return to the pool for his main event, the 200m Freestyle while Calum Bain will make his championship debut in the 50m Butterfly as he warms up for his main event, the 50m Freestyle.
