Mariemont High School grad wins gold medal at the World Swimming Championships

SHANGHAI, China (FOX19) -

The United States 4x100-meter medley relay won gold Sunday at the World Swimming Championships in Shanghai, China. Among the four swimmers representing America was 2004 Mariemont High School graduate Nick Thoman.

Thoman swam the first leg of the relay (backstroke) followed by Mark Gangloff (breastroke), Michael Phelps (butterfly), and anchor Nathan Adrian (freestyle). The team finished in 3:32.06 with Australia (3:32.26) second and Germany (3:32.60) third.

This is the second time Thoman's name will be added to the record books. He currently holds the world record in the 100-meter backstroke short course. Thoman earned that honor with a time of 48.94 at the Duel in the Pool in Manchester, United Kingdom.

The 25-year-old's grandfather is also known for his swimming. Richard Thoman held a world record for the 100-yard backstroke in the 1950s and is a four time All-American at Yale.
