Athens Olympic double gold-medalist Kosuke Kitajima will be entered in three breaststroke events at the national short course championships later this month, the Japan Swimming Federation said Monday.

Kitajima will compete in the 50-, 100-, and 200-meter men’s breaststroke races at the Feb. 26-27 meet to be held at Tokyo Tatsumi International Swimming Center.

Hughes Duboscq of France, a bronze medalist in the men’s 100 breaststroke, and Michael Klim, who was part of the Australian men’s 4×200 silver medal freestyle relay team, are among six Olympic medal winners who will participate from 14 countries.
