Gal Nevo reached the 400-meter individual medley final at the world short course swimming championships for a third straight time on Thursday night, finishing in eighth place overall in Doha, Qatar.

The 27-year-old clocked a time of 4:07.99 minutes, 1.44 seconds slower than the time he recorded in the morning heats.

“I felt good and the swim went pretty much as planned,” said Nevo. “Qualifying for the final was my main target at these championships.”

Nevo, who ended the 400m IM finals at the two previous championships in fifth and seventh place, respectively, made a surprise move two months ago when he left the national team program and head coach Leonid Kaufman to train alone with coach Ehud Segal.
