Killaloe’s Jonathan McGrath Has Paralympics In His Sight

A Clare paralympic swimmer claims his target is to reach the 2020 Tokyo Games after qualifying for the World Championship.

Jonathan McGrath completed the 400 metre freestyle at a World Series event last weekend in Glasgow in 4 minutes 53.20 seconds to book his trip to London in September.

He needs to swim another 2.95 seconds quicker to make the grade, having just missed out by 1.2 seconds in getting to the Rio games in 2016.


Killaloe’s McGrath says he aims to keep trimming his time over the season.
