Owens Picks Up Second Relay Gold at IPC Swimming World Championships

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS – Catawba sophomore Ashley Owens (Stockbridge, GA/Stockbridge HS) picked up her third gold medal at the 2010 International Paralympic Committee Swimming World Championships, helping the 4 x 100 medley relay team to a win on Friday night at the Pieter Van Den Hoogenband Swimming Stadium.  Owens completed the meet with a fifth place finish in the three mile open water swim on Saturday.   Owens finished the world championships with four medals (3 gold, 1 silver). 

Owens anchored Friday’s relay, swimming the freestyle leg and finishing a quarter of a second ahead of Great Britain, the silver medalist.  The USA team of Susan Scott, Mallory Weggemann, Jessica Long and Owens posted a time of 5:00.68.  Russia took the bronze medal.

On Tuesday, Owens earned her first individual medal, a silver, in the S10 class of the 100 freestyle.  She out-touched France’s Elodie Lorandi by less than a tenth of a second, finishing in a time of 1:02.34 to Lorandi’s 1:02.42.  Summer Mortimer, of Canada, took the gold with a swim of 1:01.39.

Owens took gold on Wednesday in the S10 class of the 400 freestyle.  Her time of 4:39.53 bested USA teammate Susan Scott, who had a time of 4:39.71, by less than two-tenths of a second.  Current world record holder, Poland’s Katarzyna Pawlik, took the bronze in a time of 4:40.23.

Owens helped the United States to a gold medal and a new world record on Monday in the 4x100 freestyle relay.  She teamed with Mallory Weggemann, Elizabeth Stone and Jessica Long to set record, winning in a time of 4:23.59.  Owens swam the leadoff leg to give the USA an advantage it never gave up.  The time lowered the existing mark of 4:30.66 by over seven seconds, which was set in 2006 by the United States.  Great Britain took the silver, finishing in a time of 4:29.49 with China earning the bronze (4:46.90).
