Nicholas Quinn has won his heat in the Men's 200m Breaststroke.

He set a time of 2:11:67 in Rio but it didn't prove enough to get him into the semi-finals.

The Mayo swimmer's time put him 19th overall for the heats stage.

And that wasn't enough to progress as the Top 16 qualify for the semi-finals which meant he missed out on qualifying by just 0.41 seconds.
