Northern Ireland's Paralympic golden girl wins her third gold medal in Rio

Northern Ireland's Paralympic swimming sensation Bethany Firth has won her third gold medal in Rio.

The Co Down woman took first place on the podium after winning the Women's SM14 200m individual medley on Saturday night.

Her sensational win came after she successfully defended her 100m backstroke title and won the 200m freestyle gold in Rio last week.

She also won a silver medal in the 100m breaststroke final.

Bethany from Seaforde in County Down, competes in the S14 class for swimmers with an intellectual disability.

Her coach Nelson Lindsay said proudly: "What a week what a swimmer!".
