All three Irish swimmers in posted season best times in their respective finals this evening at the Para Swimming World Championships.

Ní Riain placed 5th in her final with a time of 04:42.74. She has her final event tomorrow, the 200m IM.

Speaking after her final Ní Riain said, “I’m happy enough with it, I would like to be a little bit faster maybe under my PB but it’s a long race and I’ve not done that much freestyle work this year so a time like that I’ll take it.”

McClements finished out his championship on a strong note also posting a season best of 01:05.90.

Speaking after his race McClements said, “It went good, I was focusing more on the 100m fly this year but that’s my fourth fastest time ever so I’m happy.”

Turner was last to compete in this evening’s session finising 5th overall with a time of 01:41.35.

Speaking after her final Turner said, “Being two seconds away from a bronze medal some would say can be heart wrenching but to be honest I really enjoyed that event. It is an event that I love to swim whether it be a medal performance or not I just love to get into it and have a bit of fun.”

Tomorrow is the penultimate day of the 2023 Para Swimming World Championships and again a busy day for Team Ireland.
