Royals Swimmer Wins the Bronze
Royals freshman swimmer Matthew Josa donned the red, white and blue to represent the United States in the 2013 Junior World Championships, held in Dubai from August 26-31. Josa added to his accolades when he was named team captain and won a bronze medal in the 100 butterfly.
"It is very exciting that Matt was chosen captain of the USA team at the Junior World Championships in Dubai," said Queens head coach Jeff Dugdale. "Matt quickly bonded with his teammates before leaving for Dubai, and I know he served as a great leader throughout the competition."
Dugdale added that Josa's summer was exceptional and his times were fast enough to put him in the record books as the third fastest ever American in his age group. This showed during the championships when he faced off against against the top completion in the world during the 100 butterfly. Finishing the race with a 53.27, Josa was only two tenths of a second behind the gold medalist.
"I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity to represent the United States and Queens in Dubai," said Josa. "The Junior World Championships was a confidence booster and motivator in my swimming career. I'm really pumped for the upcoming season, and I can't wait to represent Queens and my fellow Royals in the pool."
