He also sealed fourth in the 50m breaststroke and took two fifth places in the 100m individual medley and 100m breaststroke.
McMahon, competing in the 50-54 year old category, was in fine form and achieved three first and second spots.
He raced to victory in the 200m freestyle, 100m breaststroke and 100m butterfly.
