INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Former University of Arizona swimmer Chad Carvin earned a spot on the United States Olympic team Wednesday night at the U.S. Olympic Trials in the 400m Freestyle.

Carvin, a 14-time national champion, finished second in the event at the trials. He swam, 3:47.50 to finish behind Klete Keller, who swam 3:47.18, an American Record.

Carvin swam for Frank Buschs Wildcat teams from 1992-96. His post-collegiate career has been plagued with injuries and illness. He was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy a heart condition in 1995, causing him to miss the 1996 Olympic Trials. He then missed the 1998 World Champions with a bulging disc in his back.

Carvin, who graduated in 1996 with a finance degree, won two titles at the 1994 NCAA Championships for the Wildcats. Since then, Carvin has won 14 U.S. titles, is the American record-holder in the 400m (short-course) and 1,000y and was named the 1997 U.S. swimmer of the year.
