ISTANBUL, Turkey – Former TCU swimmer Edgar Crespo wrapped up his competition at the FINA Short Course World Championships Saturday morning at the Sinan Erdem Dome. Representing Panama, Crespo finished tied for 27th out of 106 competitors in the 50-meter breaststroke with a time of 27.56.

Crespo was in the early heats and his 27.56 in the third heat stood as the top time until the eighth of the 12 heats. The tight competition was on show as Crespo missed the 16-man semifinals by only 0.35 seconds.

Earlier in the week, Crespo finished 28th in the 100-meter breaststroke competition.

Crespo is a two-time Olympian for Panama, and has represented his home country at many World Championships and other international competitions. He is the TCU school record holder in the 100 and 200 breaststroke. An eight-time All-Mountain West honoree, Crespo represented the Horned Frogs at the 2010 and 2011 NCAA Championships. Crespo recently competed unattached at the 2012 USA Swimming Winter National Championships and finished 13th in the 100-yard breaststroke.
