Representing Scoil Phroinsias Naofa, Clara, Lee qualified for the All Ireland Minor Schools Swimming Championships by winning two provincial titles in November.

Last weekend swimming at U-9, Lee took to the pool to take on the best in the country and he won both his heats to qualify for the 50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke finals which comprised of just six swimmers in each.

He did not disappoint in either race delivering two personal best times on his way to silver in both finals.
