McMahon ruled out of breaststroke events

Sycerika McMahon says she is devastated about not being able to compete in the breaststroke events at the 2013 World Swimming Championships.

The 18-year-old from Portaferry was only recently informed she had not achieved the A standard for the Barcelona event within the specified time period.

Ireland competitor McMahon had clocked the required time - but that was before the qualifying period had opened.
