VICTORIA, B.C. - Representing the RHAC Predators, sophomore Kourosh Ahani placed second in the men's 100 fly preliminaries at the Canadian World Championship Trials last weekend in Victoria, British Columbia. His time of 54.58 advanced him to the men's 100 fly finals that evening, where he swam a 54.45 and placed fourth overall.
Ahani will not compete in the men's 100 fly at the FINA World Aquatics Championships. Ahani had a standout sophomore campaign which saw him swim Pitt's top-four times in the men's 100 fly this season. He also set the 100 fly school record and was crowned the Big East Champion in mid-February.
