Day Four Review IPC World Swimming Championships Montreal

In two dramatic relays, Great Britain’s Claire Cashmore and Amy Marren managed to claw back into first place (4:27.95) having been behind to Canada for the first 200m. Jessica Long did her best for team USA alongside team mates Cortney Jordan, Elizabeth Smith and Anna Johannes to finish in third.

The women’s race was equally as thrilling, with Russia’s Nina Ryabova winning gold in a European record time of 2:30.71. There was an exciting race to the wall for silver and bronze, resulting in a dead heat between 17 year-old Canadian Aurelie Rivard and Aussie Katherine Downie. Both athletes were awarded silver.

Valerie Grand’Maison picked up her second gold of the championships in an incredibly close women’s 50m freestyle S13 sprint (27.96). Russian Anna Krivshina touched the wall just 0.04 seconds behind Grand’Maison for second place and German Elena Krawzow finished in third.

Young New Zealander Mary Fisher is having a brilliant world championships so far and it did not stop this evening in the women’s 100m freestyle S11, where she won her third gold in as many days (1:09.61), this time breaking a Oceania record. She beat Germany’s Daniela Schulte into silver and China’s Guizhi Li into bronze.

The three fastest qualifiers from the morning converted their performances into medals in the women’s 100m backstroke SB8. Russian Olesya Vladykina becomes world champion in this event for the first time, her best effort being bronze at London 2012, and adding to her growing collection of titles. Claire Cashmore kicked in for silver for Great Britain and Ireland’s Ellen Keane in bronze.

Simmonds shaved nearly one second off her own world record (3:04.41) to beat German Verena Schott and Ukrainian Oksana Khrul.

Germany’s Kristen Bruhn won her third 100m backstroke S7 world title (1:23.99), followed by USA’s flag bearer at the championships, Cortney Jordan and another Canadian medal was won by Sarah Mehain.
