Five Medals for Deirdre Faul in Transplant Games

Following her gold medal in squash earlier in the week, Deirdre Faul, who is a liver transplant recipient, also won another four medals at the Games. She broke two World Transplant time records in Swimming at the 100m Breaststroke and the 400m freestyle events and she also was awarded with a Silver in the 50m Breastroke and 200m Freestyle, an extraordinary accomplishment as just days previously the 51 year old defended and won her World Transplant title in Squash, her seventh in a Row since her first win at the 2007 games. What a performance from Deirdre!!

Deirdre is among 38 members of Transplant Team Ireland who are participating at the World Transplant Games in Newcastle Gateshead this week. Athletes are competing in their respective age categories in the following events: badminton, cycling, darts, golf, petanque, squash, swimming, table tennis, ten pin bowling, tennis, mini-marathon, and track and field.The team's final medals tally was 17 Gold, 18 Silver and 15 Bronze which earned them a very respectable 11th place position on the leader board amongst 56 countries some with larger teams. A really magnificent performance!

Gold for Deirdre Faul - Her 7th!!

Liver transplant woman squashes competition at World Transplant Games winning her seventh in a row World Champion title

Liver transplant recipient Deirdre Faul from Dalkey Dublin squashed competition at the World Transplant Games today. She has achieved an amazing 'Seven in a Row' World Transplant Squash Champion title and a Gold medal for winning her squash event the World Transplant Games in Newcastle today.

The mother of two sons has reigned supreme at the biennial games since first winning Gold for Squash at the World Transplant Games in 2007. Today saw her sail through qualifiers to reach the final against a French competitor with a final score of 3 games to nil in a best of five competition. A competitor representing Great Britain/Northern Ireland shared third place with an Argentinian lady. Deirdre said, "I'm delighted. The French competitor was coming back in the third match so I had to stay relaxed and focused. It is amazing to get seven in a row. A big thanks to my coach Frank Donnelly for all his help and to Irish Squash for their support coming up to the Games and of course a very special thanks to my donor and donor family".

Deirdre (51) is also an accomplished swimmer and will now turn her focus to her competition at the swimming pool on Tuesday and Wednesday. At the previous biennial World Transplant Games in Malaga in 2017 the then 49 year old won 4 Gold medals breaking world transplant time records in both the 400m and 200m freestyle swimming events as well as coming first in the 100m breaststroke before following up with her 6th in a row Gold in Squash.

Deirdre is among 38 members of Transplant Team Ireland who are participating at the World Transplant Games in Newcastle Gateshead this week. Athletes are competing in their respective age categories in the following events: badminton, cycling, darts, golf, petanque, squash, swimming, table tennis, ten pin bowling, tennis, mini-marathon, and track and field.


This year the team has gratefully received support from Swim Ireland, Athletics Ireland and Irish Squash. The on-going coaching support from Swim Ireland has been particularly welcomed. Astellas Pharma Ltd. has again provided some sponsorship towards the costs of running the team.
