Three to Worlds

STANFORD, Calif. – Abrahm DeVine, Jack LeVant and Grant Shoults are slated to represent the United States at the 2019 FINA World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea, as announced Wednesday by USA Swimming.

The Cardinal was the only program with multiple 2019 NCAA-eligible swimmers named to the team for the championship, which is set for July 12-28. The trio joins a roster which includes just seven collegiate swimmers – the championship is the final major international swimming competition before the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

DeVine is the reigning Pac-12 Swimmer of the Year after capturing the 400-yard individual medley at the 2018 NCAA Championships. He went on to represent the United States at the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships after placing second in the 200-meter individual medley (1:57.41) at Phillips 66 National Championships.

LeVant (1:46.39), an incoming freshman from Southlake, Texas, set a world junior record in the 200-meter freestyle preliminaries at Phillips 66 Nationals, placing fifth in the A-final with 1:46.46. LeVant was named Junior Swimmer of the Meet by SwimSwam with Stanford also earning a Team of the Meet honorable mention.

Shoults, a six-time All-American and two-time Pac-12 500-yard freestyle champion, also represented the United States at the Pac Pacific Championships after finishing runner-up at Phillips 66 Nationals in the 400-meter freestyle (3:46.90).

Recently, DeVine, LeVant, Shoults, Daniel Roy and True Sweetser were named to Team USA for the 2018-19. Goldman Family Director of Men's Swimming Ted Knapp and assistant coach Jeff Kostoff were named Team USA coaches.
