Source: Greensboro Replacing Lame-Duck Iowa as Host of 2021 NCAA Men’s Swimming Championships

The 2021 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships will be hosted by the Greensboro Aquatic Center in North Carolina, a source tells Swimming World.

The decision is subject to approval by the NCAA’s Championship committee.

The championships had been slated to take place in Iowa City, Iowa, at the University of Iowa Natatorium, which had hosted the 2015 NCAA men’s championships and the 2020 Big Ten women’s champs. But with Iowa’s decision to cut the swimming programs in August, a campaign to strip the school of hosting duties was successful.

The Greensboro Aquatic Center will host the women’s championships from March 17-20. The men’s meet would follow March 24-27. All of that, of course, is subject to the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused the cancellation of last year’s swimming championships as well as the spring and fall NCAA championships.

    Great news! Iowa didn’t deserve to still host the NCAA’s after cutting swimming.
