Cashmore storms to relay gold and individual silver in Montreal
1:28pm Saturday 17th August 2013 in Local
KIDDERMINSTER disabled star Claire Cashmore tasted gold success at the IPC World Swimming Championships.
The 25-year-old was an integral part of Team GB's 34 point 4x100m medley relay squad which stormed to victory in Montreal.
The quartet, which had been pipped to gold at the Paralympics in London by the smallest margin, set a storming time of four minutes and 27.95 seconds.
Stephanie Millward kicked the relay off with a strong first 100m and then Susie Rodgers followed that up to put them in third place at the half way point.
Cashmore stormed through her third leg and handed over to Marren in second place and it was the 200m IM SM9 champion that brought the team home to the victory ahead of Canada (4:35.41) and USA (4:35.95).
Cashmore was also in individual action on day four, setting the third fastest time of her career to secure SB8 100m Breaststroke silver for the third successive IPC World Championships.
Having already won SM9 200m Individual Medley bronze, she won her second individual medal of the competition with a time of 1:21.23.
