Ellen Keane runs out of steam as four races in 24 hours takes its toll

Nicole Turner was also in action this evening.

ELLEN KEANE HAD little left in the tank as she finished eighth in tonight’s S9 100m butterfly final.

The 21-year-old, who last night claimed a brilliant bronze in the 100m breaststroke, recorded a slower time of 1:11.27 than she did in this morning’s heats, suggesting the exertions of the last 24 hours had finally taken its toll. 

Shortly after, 14-year-old Nicole Turner finished seventh in her fifth final of the Games. The Laois native swam a time of 1:46.19 in the SB6 100m breaststroke medal race.
