Aug. 12, 2007
Bangkok, Thailand - Incoming freshman women's swimmer Kate Dwelley and current women's swimmer Brooke Bishop came up with big performances at the long-course meters 2007 World University Games at Aquatic Stadium on Sunday. Dwelley took the bronze medal in the 200 free with a personal-best time of 1:59.35. Bishop, who turned 21 years old on Sunday, was fourth in the 100 back with a personal-best time of 1:02.11.
'I was a lot more confident tonight,' Bishop told USA Swimming after her race. 'I've never been on a national team or at an international meet before, so this morning was a lot more nerve wracking, trying to make the top eight ... I've never been under 1:02 before, and I was 1:02.1 tonight, so I hope during the relay tomorrow I can break it.'
