Laois swimmer Nicole Turner has continued her excellent form at the Paralympics with a seventh placed finish in the SM6 200-metres individual medley. Turner's time was 3:18.18.

The 14-year-old has reached three finals, from her opening three events. Turner still has another three races to compete in before the end of the Games.

Turner originally finished the race in eighth place, but was promoted to seventh after Ukraine's Yelyzaveta Mereshko was disqualified.

Great Britain's Ellie Simmonds won the race in a World Record of 2.59.81.

Turner returns to the pool on Tuesday afternoon in the S6 400-metre Freestyle heats.
