Top Stars to Use Swimvitational as Warm-Up for Olympic Trials
Tickets are now on sale for the Mutual of Omaha Swimvitational, scheduled for June 5-8 at the Qwest Center. The Swimvitational is the final swim meet in the country where Olympic hopefuls can qualify to compete at the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials.
Meet organizers anticipate a large, star-studded field as the top names in swimming are expected to use the Swimvitational as an opportunity to try out the pool where the Olympic Trials will be held less than a month later. Fans may also see some foreign stars who will take advantage of the chance to test themselves against top American competition.
Tickets to the Mutual of Omaha Swimvitational cost $10 for the evening finals sessions, $10 for the morning preliminary events, or $15 for the entire day. They are available through Ticketmaster or at the Qwest Center box office.
“The affordable price means fans have a great chance to get an up-close look at an outstanding venue for swimming,” said Harold Cliff, Omaha Sports Commission. Cliff is the Swimvitational Chief Operating Officer. “People will be amazed at how the Qwest Center will be transformed.”
“The Mutual of Omaha Swimvitational will be an exciting, action-packed swim meet,” said Mutual of Omaha Senior Vice President John Hildenbiddle. “It is a fantastic opportunity for people who don’t have tickets to the Olympic Trials to see some of the nation’s best swimmers before they return to Omaha later this summer to try and win a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team.”
