Banks lauds McMahon qualification

Swim Ireland High Performance Directer Paul Banks believes the Olympic Games qualifier Sycerika McMahon will continue to improve as London approaches.

McMahon sealed her Olympic place after making the 100m breaststroke qualifying time at the European Championships in Hungary.

The Portaferry teenager broke her own Irish record after clocking a time of 1:08.37 in the heats on Tuesday and goes in the semi-finals later in the day.

The 16-year-old will also be involved in several other events in Debrecen.
