Despite the change of scenery, IU swimmers junior Blake Pieroni and sophomore Lilly King continued their success in Windsor, Canada, at the 2016 FINA Short Course Meter World Championships.
Pieroni won a bronze Tuesday night with Team USA, anchoring the 400 freestyle relay that tied for third with a time of 3:07.76. Pieroni’s split of 46.02 in the race was the third-fastest of anyone in the event.
On the women’s side, King added to her already impressive résumé by breaking the American record for the 50-meter breaststroke semifinal with a time of 29.17. The time also stands as the fifth-fastest in the history of the event.
IU alum Cody Miller and Hoosier post-grad swimmer Zane Grothe also posted impressive results. Miller finished 5th in qualifying for the 100-meter breaststroke final while Grothe finished seventh in the 400-meter freestyle final.
Miller and King will swim the finals of the 100-meter breaststroke and 50-meter breaststroke, respectively, tonight.
