Sophomore sprinter and hurdler Aaron Mallett will compete in the 2015 University World Games in Gwangju, South Korea, on July 3-14.

The St. Louis native will compete in his main event, the 110-meter hurdles. This outdoor season, Mallett set a personal record in this event at the Florida Relays on April 3-4. His time of 13.60 ranks second in the NCAA, first in the Big Ten, and second on Iowa’s list.

“I thought it was really cool to get invited to it, and the fact that I’m now accepted is an honor,” Mallett said. “I get to represent not only the Hawkeyes but the United States.”

The sophomore will be the first Hawkeye to compete at the University World Games since All-American Justin Austin did so in 2013.
