July 6, 2008

  • USA Swimming Official Site

    OMAHA, Neb. - On the final day of the 2008 USA Olympic Swimming Trials, Brooke Bishop wrapped up a solid eight days for Stanford women with a sixth place finish in the 50 meter freestyle final. A 17-time All-American during her stellar Cardinal career, Bishop touched the wall in a time of 25.16 seconds - just .34 second shy of the second place finisher.

    During eight days in Omaha, four current or former Stanford women's swimmers combined to compete in seven of the 13 event finals. The four finalists placed at least sixth in each competition, including a fourth place finish, a trio of third place touches, a second place finalist and a Stanford event champion in the 200 meter butterfly.

    While each of the 15 women with Cardinal ties swam exceptionally at the Trials, a pair of current Stanford student-athletes will be on the 2008 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team: juniors Elaine Breeden (100 and 200 meter butterfly) and Julia Smit (4 x 200 meter freestyle relay).

    Both Breeden and Smit will participate in their first Olympic Games when they travel to Beijing, China for the 44th Olympiad. The swimming events are slated for Aug. 9-21.
