Swimming World’s U.S. Olympic Trials Predictions: Who Makes the Women’s Team For Tokyo?

With the 2021 US Olympic Trials beginning this weekend in Omaha, Nebraska, many fans are looking at the psych sheets and predicting who they think will make the Olympic team for Tokyo as if they are filling out a March Madness bracket. Over the next week, dreams will be realized as the members of the Tokyo team will finally be named after a long, long five-year wait since the team exited Rio.

Swimming World’s team of Andy RossDan D’AddonaDavid RiederJohn Lohn and Matthew de George predicted who they think will take first and second in each women’s event, as well as which swimmers will be selected for relay duty at the Olympic Games that begin July 24 in Japan’s capital.

The Trials will be held June 13 – 20 and finals will be live on NBC each night.
