Mona McSharry has booked her place at the Tokto Olympic Games after achieving the qualifying time in the 100m breaststroke at Tuesday morning's Swim Ireland National Team trials.

In a blistering performance, the Marlin's Swimming Club member, swam 1:06.97 which was just inside the qualification time of 1:07.07.

It's a wonderful start to the event for the Grange native who is among a number of Olympic hopefuls in action.

The trials are taking place this week at the National Aquatic Centre.
