Daniel Wiffen Wins Ireland's First Ever World Championship Long-Course Swimming Medal

He took gold in this afternoon’s final of the men’s 800-metre freestyle in Doha

Daniel Wiffen has won Ireland’s first ever World Championship long-course swimming medal.

He took gold in this afternoon’s final of the men’s 800-metre freestyle in Doha.

Wiffen was just over a second outside his own national best, but touched the wall 2-seconds quicker than silver medal winner Elijah Winnington.

Italy’s Gregorio Peltrinieri took bronze.

Earlier today, Shane Ryan and Maria Godden failed to progress from their heats of the 100-metre freestyle and 50-metre backstroke respectively.
