I hope the experience gained at these Games will stand to the athletes in the future and hopefully we’ll see them again in London in 2012.

Martin Burke, Chef de Mission

Earlier in the pool there were three Irish Finalists, Grainne Murphy and Emily Heyburn competed in the Girls 800m fresstyle and Girls 100M butterfly, finishing 5th and 7th respectively. William Ensor qualified for the boys 200m backstroke B final and finished 8th.

Criterium specialist, Peter Williams was unfortunate to be caught behind a crash on the last lap and missed the A final by a single place.

The cyclists good form continued when both riders finished well in the pack in the A final and Peter Williams sprinted to 10th place in the B Final.

Niamh has already won a bronze medal in the 100m final, setting a new personal best of 11.87. Chris Russell qualified for the boys final but may not be able to take part due to an injury picked up in his heat.

He said " As President of the OCI i'm delighted that the Irish team have started so well, Noel and Niamh's performances have really motivated the rest of the Irish team"

In Swimming, Grainne Murphy came tantalisingly close to her second podium when she finished 4th in the final of the Girls 200m Individual Medley.
