The U.S. Olympic Team Trials is one of the premier events in all of sports. It’s considered one of the fastest and most competitive swim meets in the world. The Trials will be held June 26-July 3 in Omaha, Nebraska. This event serves as the ONLY selection meet for the U.S. Olympic Swim Team competing at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in the pool.
In 2008, the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials were recognized by SportsTravel Magazine as the Best Amateur Multi-Sport or Multi-Discipline Event. The event was nominated for the award again in 2012 and was also a finalist for the Sports Event of the Year by the Sports Business Journal in 2012.
