At the weekend Mark Doherty competed in the Inaugural Ulster Long Course (50m Pool) Swimming Gala at the New Bangor Aurora.

He had exceptional swims during the Saturday morning session, obtaining a Silver in the 200 Back Stroke and Gold in the 50 Back Stroke.

Mark is making great progress in the sport and his Gold Medal and Ulster Back Stroke Title are a great reward for the many hours of hard work he has put in this season.
