July 14, 2009

Belgrade, Serbia – Recent Georgia Tech graduate Mickey Malul and rising senior Gal Nevo each recorded strong showings in the pool representing Israel at the recently-completed World University Games.

Malul, a two-time ACC champion in the 100-breast, touched the wall in 27.57. That mark places him in the top 15 in the world.

Rising senior Gal Nevo finished ninth in the 200-fly, just missing a spot in the final race. He touched the wall in 1:58.81, .55 seconds off of eighth place and a spot in the event final.

Nevo also swam in the 200-IM and 400-IM, a pair of events he earned All-American honors in at the NCAA Championships this year. In the 400-IM, he also recorded a ninth-place finish and just missed qualifying for the final. He clocked in at 4:24.17, only .37 seconds off the eighth place finishers time.
