SWIMMING // Krayzelburg fourth in backstroke in return

Olympic gold medalist Lenny Krayzelburg's comeback is off to a good start.

Krayzelburg, who had shoulder surgery after the 2004 Games, finished fourth in the 100-meter backstroke finals with a time of 56.93 seconds at the U.S. Open Swimming Championships in West Lafayette, Ind. Ryan Lochte won the event and set a meet record in 54.37.

It was Krayzelburg's first major competition since the Athens games.

"For a first meet coming back, I was pretty happy," the four-time gold medal winner said after the race at Purdue's Boilermaker Aquatic Center. "It's going to take some time, but it's a good start."
