Hardy to Compete at 2006 Short Course World Championships

April 3, 2006

Cal freshman Jessica Hardy will begin competition at the FINA Short Course World Championships, Wednesday, in Shanghai, China. Hardy, who recently won the 100-yard breaststroke at the 2006 NCAA Championships, will compete in the 50- and 100-meter breaststroke events this week.

The Short Course World Championships will be contested at Qizhong Stadium in a 25m pool. The meet will run from April 5-9.

Hardy, a native of Long Beach, Calif., is a former world record holder in the 100m breast. She set the mark in the semis at the 2005 World Championships before ultimately finishing second in the finals. She also earned a silver medal in the 50 breast at that meet.
