Bielby off to Serbia

Pointe Claire native Steven Bielby, a member of the McGill University swim team, was named Monday as one of 42 student-athletes who will represent Canada in swimming at the 25th Summer Universiade, also known as the World University Games, from July 1 to 12, in Belgrade, Serbia.

Bielby, a 19-year-old electrical engineering major, had a stellar campaign, becoming only the third freshman ever to earn the Forbes trophy as male athlete-of-the-year honours at McGill. The 5-foot-7 middle distance specialist was the first male in McGill’s history to win three individual gold medals at a CIS championship meet and was voted CIS rookie of the year. He established three McGill and three Quebec university records while winning the 1,500 metres (15:22.71), the 400 individual medley (4:11.42) and the 400 freestyle (3:49.73).
