Dublin duo give their best in Olympic pool

SWIMMING: Tallaght’s Brendan Hyland recorded his second fastest ever time to finish third in his heat of the 200m butterfly, but missed out on a place in the next stage. 

His time of 1:57.09, which was just half a second off his Irish senior record, left him in a final position of 23rd, which meant he did not progress. 

Meanwhile, Templeogue’s Ellen Walshe finished eighth in her heat in the Women’s 200m Individual Medley after recording a 2:13.34 swim.
