Clarke offers his congratulations to gold medallist Firth

Alliance Down Councillor Patrick Clarke has offered his congratulations to local County Down teenager Bethany Firth who won a gold medal in the 100m backstroke at the Paralympics.

Cllr Patrick Clarke said: “I would like to offer my congratulations to Bethany on what is a magnificent victory.

“The fact that she is only 16 years old makes her gold medal all the more amazing. I have no doubt that we will see her win more gold medals in future games.

“She is a great role model for young people and I hope that this victory will inspire others to take up sport.

“These Games have captured the public’s imagination in Northern Ireland, I hope that that this is the first of many medals for our local athletes.”
