LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana University swimmer Lilly King is headed to the Olympics.

Nineteen-year-old King just finished her freshman year at IU.

She was the favorite in the women's 100 meter breaststroke final last night.

King competed against U of L's Andee Cottrell, who was trying to join teammate Kelsi Worrell on the Olympic team.

King won in one minute, five point two seconds. It's the fastest time in the world in the last two years.

Cottrell finished 5th. She was just over one minute and seven seconds. Her time is the second-best time ever for a Cardinal.
