Barry Added to Ireland's World Championship Team

Former swimming All-American Barry Murphy was added to Ireland's squad for the FINA World Championships, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain, starting in late July.

Murphy was been one of Swimming Ireland's best, especially in the breaststroke. He represented Ireland in his Olympic debut last summer in London. 

During his college career, Murphy called Knoxville home from 2006-09. He was a 19-time All-American during that time and served a vital role on the Vols' relay teams. He still holds the UT record for the 50-yard freestyle, finishing the race in 19.14 seconds at the 2009 NCAA Championships.

The United States' World Championship squad will be determined at a meet later this month, with the Vols and Lady Vols both set to bring a large contingent.
