USA’s twelve-time Paralympic and twenty-four-time world champion Jessica Long will dive into the pool looking to continue her dominance on the last day of swimming on Saturday (17 September).

The 24 year-old world record holder has held this title since Beijing 2008 and won her fourth world title in 2015.

Despite her young age Long is one of the most decorated swimmers in the world and will undoubtedly continue her medal hunt at Rio 2016.

All the swimming action will be played out at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium between 9-17 September.
