Roisín Ní Riain sets New World Record

Róisín Ní Riain set a new World Para Swimming short course record in the S13 200m Backstroke with a time of 2:21.20, shaving off 1.39 seconds from her heat swim and breaking the record she set just that morning. The Tokyo Paralympian swam a time of 2:22.59 in the Women’s 200m Backstroke, setting a new short course World Record, only to come back for the evening session and go 1.39 seconds quicker tonight to set a new World Record. An amazing achievement for the Limerick SC member.
