Former Regis Jesuit High School swimming star Jun Han Kim was named the 2010 NCAA Division II National Male Swimmer of the Year after leading Drury University to its sixth consecutive national title on March 13 in Canton, Ohio.
The 20-year-old sophomore won individual titles in the men's 200-yard individual medley and the 200-yard butterfly. He was also part of the team that won the 400-yard medley relay. Kim competed in seven separate events for the Panthers during the four-day national championships.
Kim – who is originally from Seoul, South Korea – was a three-time individual state champion and set the Colorado state record for the 200 individual medley while in high school. He was named the Colorado Prep Swimmer of the Year by The Denver Post in 2008 after leading the Raiders to their 14th consecutive state title.
