The Tralee swimmer produced a personal-best time to become World champion in Qatari capital Doha.

 

Claire (32) recorded the fastest time today (Wednesday, February 28) in the 50-metre women’s breaststroke event. She raced in the 30-34 age category, and her time of 34.07 seconds was enough to take the title – albeit by an incredibly tight margin, 0.02 seconds ahead of the second-placed Hungarian swimmer.

She also recorded a top-five finish in Tuesday’s 100-metre breaststroke competition in the same age category.
