Former Indiana swimmer Lilly King added three medals to her resume during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She earned a silver medal with the USA on Saturday during the final day of swimming events. 

Although she did not compete in the finals, King secured a silver medal by competing during the preliminary heats of the 4x100 medley relay. In total, Hoosier athletes have secured 11 total medals during this year's Olympic games. 

King also earned a silver medal in the 200-meter breaststroke and bronze in the 100-meter breaststroke. 

Former Indiana swimmers Zach Apple and Blake Pieroni also helped the USA men's team to the gold medal in the same event. Apple anchored what ended up as a world-record setting performance. 

Like King, Pieroni also didn't compete in the finals, but he secured a medal by anchoring the team during the preliminary heats. 

Indiana swimming and diving has one final opportunity to add to its medal count as rising senior diver Andrew Capobianco competes in the 3-meter springboard event.

Prelims for the competition are scheduled for Monday at 2 a.m. ET, followed by the finals at the same time Tuesday.
