The University of Chicago Maroons women's swim team's Naomy Grand'Pierre will take on world-class competitors at the 2017 “17th FINA World Championships” next weekend in Budapest, Hungary.

In doing so, she set a new Korean record, with a time of 57.07 seconds.

The FINA World Championships - or World Aquatics Championships - are the main global competition for aquatic sports: swimming, diving, high-diving, open-water swimming, synchronised swimming, and water polo.

The swimmers had two events each.

"The team was sent by Guam Swimming Federation and though the swimmers are from different teams -- at this particular meet, we are one team representing Guam", said San Agustin. "In light of competitive nature of freestyle swimming generally, she chose to focus on butterfly".

Meanwhile, Kim Seo-young became the first Korean swimmer to have advanced to the final in an individual medley at the world championships, finishing sixth in the 200-m race with a time of 2:10.40.
