Gonzaga Prep graduate Daniel Roy finished third in the 200-meter breaststroke final on Sunday at the World University Games in Napoli, Italy.

Roy was in fourth place after the first turn, as fellow American Jonathan Tybur took the early lead before finishing seventh.

Roy trailed eventual winner Kirill Prigoda of Russia by .12 seconds heading into the final 50 meters but gave up second place to Ilia Khomenko of Russia. Prigoda won in 2 minutes, 8.88 seconds, with Khomenko second in 2:09.42 and Roy third in 2:09.63.

Roy recently completed his freshman season at Stanford by earning his first All-America award with a 12th-place finish in the 200 breast at the NCAA Championships.
