IRISH SWIMMER GRÁINNE Murphy has taken the silver medal in the women’s 1500 metre freestyle final at the European Swimming Championships.

Seventeen-year-old Murphy from Wexford held the silver-medal position throughout the race to finish on 16:02:09, breaking the Irish record.

Ahead of the race, BBC’s correspondent Ollie Williams wrote:

One name worth watching out for in the women’s 1500m freestyle final is Grainne Murphy. She’s 17, from Ireland, and has been putting a host of bigger names to shame this week.

Denmark’s Lottie Friis, who took the 800m gold on Thursday, led from the start after a strong break.

Murphy had led and easily won her qualifying round for the 1500m final yesterday, after narrowly missing out on a medal in the 800m final. She withdrew from the 200m butterfly event to concentrate fully on the freestyle final.

Ireland’s Barry Murphy missed the cut for the men’s 50m freestyle after finishing 29th in today’s heats. The Dubliner will be back in the water again this evening for the men’s 50m breaststroke final.
