Caeleb Dressel swims his third and final event of the Trials in the 100 fly, racing in lane four of the first circle-seeded heat, and next to him will be a familiar face in Ryan Murphy, his longtime teammate and friend from their youth days in the Jacksonville, Fla., area. Murphy is already on the team in both backstrokes and swimming the 100 fly as an extra event. Shaine Casas and Aiden Hayes highlight the next heat, with Dare Rose and Thomas Heilman own the center lanes in the final heat.

The swimmers who have combined for the past three world titles in the 200 IM will highlight that event, with Kate Douglass (2023 and 2024) and Alex Walsh (2022) in lane four in their respective heats while Torri Huske looms as a threat as the third seed. Leah Hayes, the World Championships bronze medalist in 2022, will swim next to Douglass.

Finally, Katie Ledecky returns to the pool after a day off to swim the 800 free prelims, with Claire Weinstein scheduled for her heat while Jillian Cox and Paige Madden go one heat prior.
