Swimmer Nicholas Quinn continues to set new records

THE Connaught Telegraph’s Young Sports Stars of the Year 2015 award winners. Number 4: Nicholas Quinn (swimming). 

NICHOLAS Quinn, who is a student at Edinburgh University, continues to set new records in what is a very tough sport.

With a record which made him a standout athlete from a very young age, Nicholas holds several Connaught records, is on the Irish squad and is the Irish junior record holder for the 200-metres breaststroke.

Last year, his ambition was to qualify for the World University Games, which he duly did at the Irish Open Swimming Championships in Dublin in April. The three-day event proved an excellent competition for the 22-year-old, who wiped an incredible four and a half seconds off his previous best time in the 200-metre breaststroke.

His new personal best of 2:13.18 saw him take gold and, even better, it ensured his qualification for the upcoming World University Games in South Korea.
