A Look At The Wave I Psych Sheets For The United States Olympic Trials

USA Swimming has released the psych sheet for Wave I of the United States Olympic Trials, which get underway Friday at the CHI Health Center in Omaha. The meet is scheduled for June 4-7, with Wave II of the Olympic Trials taking place from June 13-20. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year marks the first time that the United States Trials has been split into two meets.

Depending on the event, there are roughly 30 athletes in each event during the Wave I competition, with the top-two finishers in each event granted qualification to the Wave II meet, where the U.S. squad for this summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo will be selected. Wave I will be held in a prelims-finals format, while Wave II will adopt the format used for the Olympic Games and past Trials, with prelims, semifinals and finals held for all events 200 meters and under. Events 400 meters and up will feature a prelims-finals setup.

This year marks the fourth consecutive time that Omaha has served as the host of the Trials, with the city debuting as host in 2008. For athletes in Wave I, te opportunity to compete in Omaha provides a taste of one of the most-demanding meets in the world, and will give two swimmers the chance to race against the best the United States has to offer in Wave II.
