LEEDS, England-- Stanford's Paul Kornfeld dominated the breaststroke at the English Shortcourse Grand Prix on Sunday, winning his third gold medal of the event by blowing away his personal-best by nearly seven seconds.

Kornfeld, who already took home first place trophies in the 50 and 100-yard events, set his personal-best in the finals of the 200 breast with a time of 2:03.26, two seconds ahead of Henrique Barbosa (2:05.79) for his final trophy of the four-day event.

He entered the finals with a preliminary best 2:05.85, breaking his previous low of 2:10.10 coming into the week.

It has been a spectacular summer for the four-time All-American in both the 100 and 200 breaststroke, as he won three medals at the Canadian World Championship Trials last month in Montreal, and just over a week ago competed in the World Aquatic Championships in Rome.

In other finals action at the Grand Prix, Stanford's Michael Zoldos finished eighth in the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:47.32, a personal best.
