BERKELEY - Former California All-American Emily Silver earned a spot in the 2008 Summer Olympics when she was announced as a member of the 4x100-meter freestyle relay at the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials Saturday at the Qwest Center in Omaha, Neb., making her the Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week.

Silver was a member of the U.S. team at the 2007 World University Games, in which she won a gold medal in the 400-free relay and a silver in the 400-medley relay. During the 2007-08 collegiate season, she recorded over 10 individual first-place finishes (in dual meets). She was a member of Cal's 800-yard free relay that won the 2008 Pac-10 title (and set a Pac-10 meet record) in 7:04.13, and she was on the NCAA runner-up 200 free relay (1:27.52, a new school record). Silver set a Cal record in the 50 free at the 2007 NCAA meet (21.99, since broken), and she was the '07 Pac-10 champion in the 100 and 200 free. Voted team MVP as a freshman in 2005, Silver earned a bronze medal in the 400-meter free relay at the World Championships that summer.

Saturday in Omaha, Silver finished fifth in the 100-meter freestyle in at time of 54.91 to earn consideration as a member of the U.S relay team for the Beijing Games.
