United States Olympic Trials (swimming)

The United States Olympic Team Trials in Swimming are held before every Summer Olympics to select the participants for the USA's swimming team. The event is overseen by the United States Olympic Committee and run/operated by USA Swimming.

The first Olympic Trials was held in 1920 in Alameda, California[1] to select swimmers for the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. The men's and women's trials have been held separately six times.[2]
