Turner brings home pool sil­ver for Ire­land

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RESULTS / ROUND-UP -

NI­COLE TURNER lit up the Sport Ire­land Na­tional Aquatic Cen­tre as she claimed Ire­land’s first sil­ver medal of the World Para Swim­ming Al­lianz Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships.

The 50M But­ter­fly S6 event was con­sid­ered Ni­cole’s best chance for a medal in the lead up to Dublin 2018 and so it proved as she was able to feed off an in­cred­i­ble at­mos­phere to storm home in 36.75 and claim her sil­ver medal for Ire­land. Turner, who reached the fi­nal in each of her five events to date, had been close to that elu­sive medal sev­eral times this week but she made no mis­take in her favourite event.
