King Returning to IU for Sophomore Season


Olympic gold medalist and star swimmer Lilly King announced she will be returning to Indiana University for her sophomore season.


“No, I’m going to stay,” she responded when asked if she was considering moving on from the university. “I made the commitment for four years, so I’m going to stick with that.”

The 19-year old Evansville native won the gold medal in Monday’s 100-meter breaststroke and has been outspoken during the first week of the games on topics ranging from doping in sports to her finger-waving rivalry with Russia’s Yulia Efimova.
