The 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – USA Swimming will be held June 26-July 3 in Omaha, Nebraska, at the CenturyLink Center.
Fun Fact: Natalie Coughlin is poised to strike gold again this summer in Rio, which would make her the most decorated American female Olympian ever.
Coughlin is tied with Swimmers Jenny Thompson & Dara Torres as the All-Time U.S. Olympic Medal Winners (12).
“This summer in Rio de Janeiro, Coughlin hopes to swim in her fourth Olympics; at age 33, she has nearly a decade on most of her twentysomething competitors. “I don’t feel old,” she says. “I’m stronger than I’ve ever been.” Depending on how the U.S. trials go at the end of June, she may compete in the 100-meter freestyle, the 100-meter backstroke and perhaps a few relays as well.
