Leeds praises Claire Cashmore

There has been praise for City of Leeds swimmer Claire Cashmore after she claimed a third medal at the Paralympic Games. Tonight, she won a silver in the women's 4x100m medley relay 34 points race.

Well done to Claire Cashmore for winning her third medal at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Together with her silver and bronze from earlier this week Claire has been really impressive taking on the tough challenge of competing in six different events at the Games. Adding to her medal collection from Beijing and Athens with more success at a third successive Games is a real testament to her talent and dedication to her sport and we are very proud of her
