Nicole Turner ended the Madeira 2022 World Para Swimming Championships on a high for Team Ireland as she captured a bronze medal for her country in the S6 50m Butterfly Final.

Turner went into the race as the fifth ranked athlete over the distance this year but she defied those odds in a close battle for the podium. Turner, who had already claimed one bronze this week, finished in a time of 37:18, just two tenths of a second behind the winner, Ellie Marks, from the USA and just over one tents of a second behind the runner up, Sara Vargas Blanco from Colombia.


Speaking after the race Nicole said “Looking back on Tuesday and today, I came here thinking I’d be in a fight for one medal, never mind bringing home two medals so I am delighted.”
