“With the announcement of the 2020 Olympic Trials qualifying standards, thousands of swimmers around the nation now have a goal as they chase their Olympic dreams,” USA Swimming National Team Managing Director Lindsay Mintenko said. “USA Swimming athletes have enjoyed two successful years since the 2016 Olympic Games, and we look forward to seeing lots of fast swimming over the rest of this Olympic quadrennial as we build toward Tokyo.”  

The qualifying time standards for the 2020 Olympic Trials were announced Thursday at the United States Aquatic Sports Convention in Jacksonville, Florida. An archived webcast can be viewed via usaswimming.org.

Qualifying times must be posted in a USA Swimming sanctioned, observed or approved competition between November 28, 2018, and the 2020 Olympic Trials entry deadline. Only long-course meters times are considered for Trials qualification.

USA Swimming’s 2018 Winter National Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina, open November 28 – the first day of the qualification period. The four-day, long-course meet is slated for Nov. 28-Dec. 1.

For the 2020 Olympic Trials, two temporary 50-meter pools will be installed by Myrtha Pools in the CHI Health Center Omaha, the state-of-the-art, 17,000-seat sports and entertainment venue in downtown Omaha.

The event order for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming will mirror that of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo; however, preliminary heats will be held at 10 a.m. CDT, followed by semifinals and finals at 6:45 p.m. CDT. The full schedule for the 2020 Olympic Games is available at Tokyo2020.org.
