Silver Success for Nicole Turner in Melbourne

ByEmma Porter |

All three members of the Para-swimming team were in the pool on the third and final day of the Citi Para Swimming World Series in Melbourne.

Nicole Turner was busiest of the three swimmers competing in the 50m Butterfly and 200m Individual Medley. An impressive 3:13.73 in the 200m Individual Medley final put her in 4th place. She excelled in her favoured event, the 50m butterfly, coming second and taking home the silver medal with a time of 0:37:77.

Ellen Keane also swam in the 200m Individual Medley alongside Turner posting a time of 2:43:47 which put her in 7th place on the day.

Barry McClements was in action in the 200m Individual Medley but unfortunately did not progress to the final.

The event sees athletes from multiple classifications compete in the same race with their finishing times awarded points based on the weighting of their classification which decides their overall finishing position.
