Patrick Flanagan- 22yrs old

"I started swimming at age 10 with Longford Swimming Club. There I trained for 8 years under Head Coach, Ronan McNevin. I earned my first Senior Irish Cap at age 16 at the British Para-Swimming Championships. At 18, I received a sports scholarship to UCD where I now study Economics and Finance. My career highlight to date was finishing in 4th place in the 400m Freestyle at my home European Swimming Championships in 2018 and most recently I finished 11th in the same event at the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships in London last September."
