Brendan Hyland set the third Irish senior record of the week, winning the gold medal in the men's 200 metres butterfly on day three of the Irish Open Swimming Championships at the NAC in Dublin on Friday.

Hyland’s terrific gold medal swim of 1.57.21 was under his own Irish record by .17 of a second, but was over half a second shy of the qualification A time for the World Championships this summer.

The NAC meet is the only opportunity for Irish swimmers to qualify for a range of upcoming competitions, including the worlds in South Korea in July and so far only Darragh Greene and the men's freestyle relay squad have qualified for the Gwangju meet

Danielle Hill of Larne showed that she had shrugged off recent injury problems in winning the 50 metres backstroke in a new Irish senior record of 28.64 seconds
