AU Swimmers named to U.S. Short Course World Championship Team

AUBURN, Ala. – Five current and former Auburn swimmers have been selected to be a part of the U.S. Short Course World Championship team, the USA Swimming office announced Wednesday. The 2010 Short Course World Championships will take place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Dec. 15-19. 

"Four of the five selected still train at Auburn and to have that many chosen to represent their country and their university is a huge honor for them and for the program," head coach Brett Hawke said.

"I'm really excited for them. Swimming at Auburn gives our athletes the opportunity to swim on the international level and this is proof of that." 

Current student-athletes chosen are junior Micah Lawrence and senior Adam Klein. Lawrence is set to swim the 100 and 200 breaststroke events, while Klein will represent the United States in the 200 breast. 

Former Auburn swimmers Mark Gangloff and Tyler McGill, both of whom still train at Auburn, along with former Tiger Eric Shanteau were also selected to compete. Gangloff will compete in the 100 breast, while McGill will take part in the 100 fly. Shanteau is set to compete in both the 100 and 200 breast, and the 200 IM. 

Thirty-seven athletes will represent the U.S. at the international competition. Swimmers were selected to compete based upon their performance at the 2010 ConocoPhillips National Championships and the Mutual of Omaha Pan Pacific Championships, which were both held in Irvine, Calif., this past August.
