Clare’s Jonathan McGrath goes in search of World Para Swimming Championship glory this morning at the London Aquatics Centre.

The Killaloe swimmer is among five participants in the first semi-final of the Men’s 400 metres freestyle S8 category just after 11.40am.

Four qualify for the evening’s final while the 26-year-old will also seek to better his qualifying time of 4 minutes 53.2 seconds as he attempts to get closer to Paralympic qualification.


McGrath says he believes he can make an impact in London.
