U.S. Olympic Trials: Complete Guide to the 2021 Meet in Omaha

Wave II of the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials are finally upon us with swimming action set to begin Sunday in Omaha.

The meet will consist of eight days of epic racing with Olympic team spots on the line in every event. But only the top two in each event will make the team, while six will make it from the 100 and 200 free events for relay purposes.

So many things to watch for. How many events will Caeleb Dressel qualify for? Can Nathan Adrian make another team after recovering from cancer? Will Ryan Lochte have one more epic swim in him to make another team? Can Simone Manuel keep up her blistering pace? How about Regan Smith? Will anyone challenge Katie Ledecky in the distance events? Will Kathleen Baker be healthy enough? The questions go on and on in the most anticipated meet in the U.S. in five years.

Swimming World will provide complete coverage of the meet, and here are some links and resources to get you started.
