Sporting Hero Ellen Keane All Set for World Championships in Ireland!
Great interview with local sporting hero, Ellen Keane, ahead of the World Para-Swimming Championships which take place on her home turf of Dublin from 13th - 19th August at the National Aquatic Centre.
Ellen has competed in 3 Paralympics since the tender age of 13 in the 2008 Beijing Games and achieved her first podium placement in Rio 2016 with a bronze medal win.
This is Ireland's first time hosting a Paralympic event and is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who has never witnessed a Paralympic sport to get a glimpse into the hard work and dedication these athletes put into excelling in their sport. It's also a fantastic opportunity for children who have disabilities to be inspired by athletes with similar impairments to them, compete and a world-class level - and hopefully inspire a new generation of Paralympic athletes in Ireland!
