PHOENIX, Arizona, June 1. YESTERDAY, Jacksonville, Fla., publicly announced it was bidding to host the 2016 Olympic Trials, using the Veterans Memorial Complex as the site for the meet. Greensboro, North Carolina, has been interested in this meet for many months, and it's likely Omaha will also put its name in the hat to bid for this meet. Of these three cities, which won would be the best host in 2016? Or do you think another city would be best? Go to swimmingworldmagazine.com/poll now and place your vote. We'll be back next Friday with results.
The U.S. Olympic Trials are about three weeks away, and we're not likely to see a lot of world records fall at the meet, but we could see a few. We asked swimming fans how many world records could be broken at Trials, and 46.67 percent said one or two world records could be broken. Second place in the voting was three or more with 33 percent and 20 percent of voters believe no world records will be set. We'll see when the Trials begin June 25 in Omaha.
