Brown wins Gold in China

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Hats off to UT swimmer Erika Brown who represented her school in a big way recently. Brown set national and championship records for team USA at the World Championships in China. Brown also anchored the gold medal winning 200 meter freestyle relay team.

The winning American team also included: Madison Kennedy, Mallory Comerford and Kelsi Dahlia. It was Brown's second time on the podium at the meet; she was also a part of the silver medal and American record setting 800 freestyle relay.

The meet marks the official end of fall competition for Brown and senior Kyle DeCoursey, who was also a relay member for Team USA. Associate head coach Lance Asti was also part of the American contingent as an assistant coach for the men's squad.

Way to go Erika!
