Lydia Jacoby, a 2022 graduate of Seward High School, ended her time in the pool at the world championships in Fukuoka, Japan on Saturday, but still picked up a gold medal in the 400-meter medley relay on Sunday.
The United States team of Regan Smith, Lilly King, Gretchen Walsh and Kate Douglass won the 400 medley relay at 3 minutes, 52.08 seconds, while Australia was second at 3:53.37.
Because Jacoby had competed for the United States in the preliminary round of the 400 medley relay, she also received a gold medal.
Jacoby now has four medals from world championships or Olympic games.
She won a gold medal in the 100 breaststroke and silver medal in the 400 medley relay in 2021 at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
In addition to the gold in the 400 medley relay at worlds in Fukuoka, Jacoby also won a bronze medal in the 100 breaststroke.
She will now return to the University of Texas for her sophomore season. As a freshman, Jacoby won the NCAA title in the 100-yard breaststroke.
