ATLANTA – Georgia Tech swimmer Gal Nevo will participate in three events at the 2010 NCAA Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships at the Bill and Mae McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio from Thursday-Saturday.
The senior from Kibbutz Hamadia, Israel will take part in the 200-IM, the 400-IM and the 200-fly. Nevo will first compete in the 200-IM on Thursday, then the 400-IM on Friday and finish off the Championships taking part in the 200-fly on Saturday. Action begins each evening at 7 p.m.
“We’re all looking forward to seeing Gal compete in his last meet here at Tech,” said swimming head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “We think he has a pretty good shot to finish in the top eight in all three events and earn All-American honors. It’ll be exciting to see what he can accomplish out there.”
Nevo qualified for each event after an impressive run at the ACC Men’s Swimming Championships last month, where he won the conference championship in all three events he will be competing in this weekend.
Nevo looks to duplicate All-American honors in both the 200-IM and the 400-IM, after finishing second in the 400-IM and fourth in the 200-IM at last year’s NCAA Championships. In the 200-IM, Nevo’s mark of 3:38.00 was the second fastest in NCAA history and the third fastest in the world, while his 1:42.79 mark in the 200-IM shattered both ACC and Georgia Tech records.
