Paralympic silver medallist Nicole Turner has returned to the podium at the Madeira 2022 World Para Swimming Championships in Portugal. Turner’s fast start and determined finish saw her come home in third place to secure the second medal of the championships for Team Ireland after Róisín Ní Riain had won the first of the week on Day 1.


This was a race that Turner hadn’t targeted but after finishing in third place overall in the heats she knew that coming to the starting blocks that she was in with a chance of reaching the podium


To be honest I’m delighted, Madeira must be a special place because every time I come I end up on the podium and to be honest, even today, the focus wasn’t on today the focus was on Saturday, so I think it’s always a bonus when you do well in a race that you are not expecting to.”

Barry McClements also competed in the evening session finals and he finished a creditable fifth against a world class field. McClements will race twice more this week with his favoured 100m Backstroke on Friday.

Speaking after the race Barry said “I’m a bit disappointed because I wanted a PB in it but I’m not going to PB in every race so I’m not going to beat myself up too much.”
