Larne teenager Conor Ferguson making waves towards Olympics

Larne swimmer Conor Ferguson, the top young prospect in Irish swimming at the moment, believes he has an outside chance of qualifying for next year's Olympics but admits his main target is the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

The 16-year-old won a gold, two silver and a bronze medal at the recent Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa.

"I want to be an Olympic gold medallist," says Ferguson.
