16-year-old Turner claims silver for Ireland at European Championships

It follows on from Ellen Keane’s bronze in the 200m Individual Medley final last night.

IRELAND’S NICOLE TURNER secured a silver medal at the 2018 Para Swimming Allianz European Championships in Dublin today.

The 16-year-old won Ireland’s second medal of the event, finishing as the runner-up in the 50m butterfly S6 with a time of 36.75.

It follows on from Ellen Keane’s bronze in the 200m Individual Medley final last night.

Britain’s Eleanor Robbinson took gold ahead of Turner with a time of 35.37, while Ukraine’s Oksana Khrul secured bronze.

“I’m really buzzing, the Irish crowd — I wouldn’t be anywhere without them. I thought I’d fight for bronze, but second is just amazing,” Turner said afterwards.
