USA Swimming has announced its roster for the 2013 World University Games in Kanzan, Russia, and former Gopher Ashley Steenvoorden, along with 38 additional swimmers, will compete on July 10-16, while the Games run from July 6-17.
Steenvoorden concluded her Minnesota career last season with a total of nine All-American honors and will look to earn gold for the USA while she swims the 800 free at the Games. Steenvoorden is joined by previous Gopher teammates Derek Toomey and Kyler Van Swol on Team USA. Toomey will be swimming the 50 free and 4X100 free relay, as Van Swol will swim the 100 fly.
Taking place every two years, the World University Games are an international multi-sport event organized for university athletes by the International Sports Federation (FISU). Swimmers on the 2013 World University Games Team roster were selected based upon their performance at the 2012 U.S. Open Championships. All athletes selected for the team must be at least 17 years old and less than 28 years old on January 1, 2013.
