OMAHA, NE (WAVE) - Indiana University swimmer Lilly King did it again Friday night. 

King won the women's 200-meter breaststroke final at the U.S. Olympic Trials at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb. 

That win, combined with her previous victory in the 100 breaststroke, means that the 19-year-old King, who recently completed her freshman year at IU, will represent the U.S. in at least two events in the Rio Games in August. 

She won the 200 in 2 minutes, 24.08 seconds. 

Meanwhile University of Louisville swimmer Kelsi Worrell, meanwhile, finished eighth in the 100 freestyle final.

Abbey Weitzeil won the 100 in 53.28 seconds. Worrell got a good start, and was third at the turn before fading to finish in 54.06. 

Worrell has one more event left, the 50 freestyle. She is seeded 10th in the event. The preliminaries for that start Saturday with the final Sunday night.
