Nicole Turner has secured bronze for Ireland at the World Para Swimming Allianz Championships in London after an incredible display of determination in the 50m Butterfly S6.
In a race that saw a new world record set by 14-year-old Chinese superstar, Daomin Liu,Turner showed her incredible resolve as she powered through the final ten metres to move from fifth to third and secure the bronze medal.
"I am absolutely over the moon, I couldn't have done it without my coaches and a special shout out to my parents, they literally…my mam stopped her career, driving me around for this so a big shout out to them."
Ellen Keane also competed in the final of the women’s 200m individual medley and showed good form ahead of her main event tomorrow. Keane finished sixth in the final and produced her best performance of the season.
Keane and Turner will both return to competition on Sunday with Keane particularly hopeful of replicating her gold medal success from the European Championships in 2019.
