DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The five-member Israeli swim team is competing amid heavy security at the short-course swimming world championships after arriving in Dubai a day late due apparent security concerns.

Gal Nevo was the first swimmer to walk out onto the pool deck when competition got under way Wednesday. He competed in the opening heat of the first event, the men's 200-meter freestyle.

"I feel kind of lucky as an athlete being here, because the average Israeli guy probably wouldn't visit here," Nevo told The Associated Press after finishing 37th in the 78-man field.
