Darragh Greene bowed out of the 100m breaststroke on day one of the Tokyo Olympic Games, finishing fourth in his heat in 60.30 seconds.
“It was kind one of those where you thought you were going quicker then I was, I will have to go back and look at how it is going” explained Greene.
Greene missed out on a top 16 qualifying spot but matched his 29th place ranking coming into the event. The Longford man competes again on Tuesday (Day 4 – July 27th) in the 200m Breaststroke.
“It’s great to get that experience out there, it’s a serious pool, and yeah, really looking forward to the 200m” declared Greene afterwards.
“It’s always the first one out of the way and I’m really looking forward to going against in the 200” added Greene.
“Yeah it’s unreal. It’s great to have everyone’s support” declared Greene on the support from Longford, “it’s very overwhelming and it’s great to have.”
