Louisville swimmer alumna Mallory Comerford continues to show her prowess in the water. This time, Comerford is with Team USA at the 2022 FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
Comerford was the second leg on the 4x100m freestyle relay for the United States. Comerford split 53.86 and Team USA clocked 3:35.23 to place second headed into the finals.
During her time as a Cardinal, Comerford won three 200 freestyle championships and one 100 freestyle championship, giving her the most NCAA titles of any individual Louisville swimmer or diver in program history.
Other Louisville swimmers appearing at the 2022 FINA World Championships include Abdelrahman El-Araby (Team Egypt), Andrej Barna (Team Serbia), Denis Loktev (Team Israel), Denis Petrashov (Team Kyrgyzstan), and Kledi Kadiu (Team Albania), all on the men's side.
Louisville will have another competitor at the 2022 FINA World Championships when the diving events begin. Else Praasterink will represent her home country of the Netherlands beginning in a few days.
We look forward to reporting on the final results of Comerford and Praasterink soon.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
