Five star medal haul for Shaw

Toni Shaw picked up her fifth medal of the World Championships, with bronze in the S9 200m Individual Medley. The 16-year old kicked hard down the final 50m moving up from fifth into third and securing bronze in a time of 2:36.93.

Gold went to Nuria Marques Soto (ESP) in 2:34.51 with Sarai Gascon (ESP) taking silver in 2:36.60. Afterwards Shaw spoke of her surprise at winning a medal in the event, she said:

"It's crazy. I definitely wasn't going into this meet with the focus of a medal in the IM so I'm really pleased. It's great my family are here to see it; my parents and my coach have given me great support."

Shaw returns to the action again tomorrow in the heats of the S9 50m freestyle and as part of the S14 100m freestyle relay team.
