Results: Irish Open Championships 2019

Bluefin’s Robin Pfeiffer represented the club at the premier meet of the season, The Irish Open Championships 2019 in Dublin last month.

Competing in six events over three days, Robin’s exceptional dedication to training, and his performance on the day, showed as he made two finals – and achieved personal best times in every swim.

Robin entered 400 FS, 400 IM, 50 BK, 50 BF, 100 FS and 800 FS.

Most impressively, Robin broke the five-minute barrier during the heats of the 400m IM, with a 9 second PB to make the A final later that evening. He then went on to better his time in the finals, after coming fourth place in the 800m FS! No mean feat!

Well done, Robin! We look forward to bringing a bigger team to the event next year! :o)
