By on October 1, 2014

Former Warwick phenom swimmer Emily Cameron is going back to the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Cameron, currently a sophomore at the University of Georgia, competed at the 2014 Phillips 66 U.S. National Championships in Irvine, Calif. from Aug. 6-10, where she reached qualifying times in the long-course 200 breaststroke (2:30.58) and 400 Individual Medley (4:44.64).

Earlier, the seven-time PIAA gold medalist punched her ticket in the 200 I.M. (2:16.00) at the Bulldog Grand Slam, held July 17-19 at the UGA pool.

The 2016 Olympic Trials will be held back in Omaha, Neb., where Cameron got her first taste of the Trials in 2012. She is hoping to earn a spot on the U.S. team in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.

Cameron also played a key role in helping the University of Georgia women record its 90th straight win at home as they recently defeated Vanderbilt 153-94 in their season opener.

She touched the wall first in the 100 breaststroke (1:03.91) and was a part of the winning 200 medley relay (1:43.58).
