Red Deer’s Tammy Cunnington wins silver at Para Swimming World Series

Se also finished sixth in the 50-m backstroke

Tammy Cunnington added to her impressive swimming resume Friday in the fourth stop on the Para-swimming World Series circuit.

The Red Deer native earned a silver in the 50-metre breaststroke at the event in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy, with a time of one minute and 20.60 seconds.

Races on the World Series circuit are multiclass and so the ranking is based on which swimmer is closest to the world record in their disability category.
