Andrew Bree improved his own breaststroke record

Andrew Bree smashed his Irish 200m breaststroke record again but missed out on qualification for the men's 200 metres final in Beijing.

The Helen's Bay swimmer finished fifth in the opening semi-final on Wednesday in a time of 2.10.16.

Bree has taken three seconds off his record in less than 24 hours but in the end was just not quick enough to reach the final showdown.

Bree had also entered in the 200m individual medley but withdrew.
