China’s two-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Ye Shiwen has a new title: College freshman.

The 2012 London Games champion in the women’s 200- and 400-metre medleys registered this week at Beijing’s prestigious Tsinghua University under a government program waiving the grueling entrance exam for outstanding athletes.

The 18-year-old Ye told local media she plans to study law, but will have to balance classes with training for next month’s Asian Games at Incheon, South Korea.
