FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - University of Arkansas swimmers Yi-Ting Siow, Erica Totten and Lynette Ng are in Rome this week to compete in the 13th FINA World Championships.

Competing for her home country of Malaysia, Siow will swim in the 100 and 200 breaststroke events and the 200 individual medley.
