USA Swimming has announced its national team captains for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. Caeleb Dressel, Simone Manuel, Ryan Murphy and Allison Schmitt were selected as the team captains.

The announcement was made on social media in a video where fellow Olympian Hunter Armstrong used card tricks to show the captains.

All four captains are two-time Olympians with the exception of Schmitt, who made the team for the fourth time. All four have won gold medals.
