Congrats to Evansville native and former IU swimmer Lilly King winning a gold medal last night in Gwangju, South Korea.

Everyone in Evansville, IN (and beyond!) is so proud of her and all of her accomplishments.  Last night she  beat Russian rival Yulia Efimova with a time of 1 minute, 4.93 seconds in the Women's 100m Breastroke at the Gwangju 2019 FINA World Championships at the Nambu International Aquatics Centre.

Way to go Lilly!
