Stanford Men's Swimming Continues Impressive Run At U.S. Olympic Trials

July 2, 2008

  • USA Swimming Official Site

    OMAHA, Neb. - Stanford's Ben Wildman-Tobriner led the Cardinal men's swimmers into the halfway point of the 2008 USA OIympic Swimming Trials, qualifying for tomorrow's 100 meter freestyle final with a time of 48.71 seconds. The longer 100 meter distance is a precursor for Wildman-Tobriner to Friday's 50 meter free, which he enters as the top seed with a 21.80-second qualifying time - just four hundredths of a second off Gary Hall, Jr.'s American record of 21.76.

    Stanford also received solid efforts in Wednesday's 200 meter breaststroke semifinals, as Chris Ash finished ninth with a time of 2:13.16 (just .11 shy of qualifying for the finals). Paul Zaich touched the wall in a time of 2:14.17, which was good for 11th place.

    Thursday will see Stanford's Eugene Godsoe, Peter Marshall and Hongzhe Sun compete in the 200 meter backstroke prelims, while Nate Cass, Josh Charnin-Aker and Scott Lathrope will hit the Qwest Center pool for the 200 meter individual medley prelims.
