ATHENS, GREECE - - Former Cal swimmer Gordan Kozulj won the 200-meter backstroke Friday at the World Championships in Athens, Greece, in a meet record time of 1:53.31. He was competing for his native Croatia.

Marylyn Chiang, who also competed for the Bears from 1996-99 and was competing for her native Canada, placed second at the World Championship in the 100-meter back with a time of 59.33. Chiang placed second to Germany's Sandra Voelker (58.66).

Kozulj graduated from Cal in 1999 after a distinguished career in which he was a two-time All-American. During his Cal career, Kozulj set the California 200-meter back record at 1:42.74 in 1998.

In 1999, Kozulj became the Pac-10 champion in the 200 individual medley with a time of 147.74. Kozulj's 1997 time of 48.25 in the 100-meter back ranks as second best behind Geoff Cronin's 48.18.

The Pac-10 recognized Kozulj's achievements as a student-athlete by awarding him the Medal for Exceptional Achievement in 1999. Kolzulj also earned first team Pac-10 All-Academic honors in 1998-99.
