Olympic coaches glad to see Swim Trials back in Omaha

US coach

David Marsh is thrilled to be coming back to Omaha in June, and not just because he was named Wednesday as head coach of the 2016 U.S. Olympic women’s swimming team. Marsh also looks forward to more heaping helpings of Omaha hospitality while in town for the June 26-July 3 U.S. Olympic Trials at the CenturyLink Center. “I’ll tell you one of my favorite things about Omaha is being out at a restaurant, talking to people in Omaha,” Marsh said. “It’s such a pleasant place with pleasant people, and you feel welcome in a genuine way.”

Swimmers set to secure spots in Omaha


While most of you were still sleeping Sunday morning, the biggest international swim meet before the 2016 Rio Olympics began in a pool pieced together at a Russian soccer stadium. The pool portion of the FINA world championships kicked off at 1:30 a.m. Central time Sunday in Kazan, Russia. The U.S. is favored to again win the total medal count, something the Americans have done 10 consecutive times since 1986.
