By David Kelly

Rio-bound Fiona Doyle secured a place in the final of the 100m breaststroke at the European championships in London's Olympic pool.

The Limerick woman was fourth in 1:07.99 in her heat to squeeze into the decider, having entered the semis placed 12th.

Doyle commented: "I knew I had more in me after the heat swim, I just needed to shake off all the cobwebs and the worry."

In the 100m backstroke final, Shane Ryan touched in eighth.

Sycerika McMahon, from Portaferry, clocked 1:11.18 in the 100m breast heats. Jordan Sloan put in an impressive display in the 200m Freestyle. The Bangor ace swam a lifetime best 1:49.01, missing a semi spot by .13 of a second. Sloan will be second reserve for tonight's semi-final.
