IRISH Swimmer Ellen Keane has finished seventh in the final of the 100M butterfly S9 final in London this morning.

She clocked a personal best time of 1:13.51 to qualify, earning her a place in the final as fastest loser in her heat.

However she slowed down slightly today, clocking a time of 1:14.04 in the final. South Africa’s Natalie du Toit grabbed the gold in 1:09.30

Keane told RTE afterwards: “It wasn’t as good as I was hoping for, but I can’t complain. I gave it my all and it hurt a lot more than this morning, but I was so happy with the race this morning.”

The 17 year old still has two events to come; the 200M individual relay and her preferred event the 10M breaststroke, which she finished sixth in Beijing in 2008.

James Scully narrowly missed out on qualification for the 50m freestyle S5 final, finishing as the ninth fastest in the heats in 38.18, with only the top eight qualifying for the final.

Scully will now look to his favoured event, the 200m freestyle on Saturday. “I’ve got the first one over and done with, it felt good and I’m feeling fitter and stronger than ever before, I’ll get in and see what happens,” Scully told RTE.
