COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (WOWT) — The Rio 2016 Olympic Games are only 100 days away, but before swimmers can take gold in Rio, they’ll need to make a splash in Omaha. We are 60 days away from Omaha.
SwimMAC Carolina will have a strong presence at the U.S. Olympic Trials, bringing around 30 competitors from its club team and about a dozen more Charlotte-based swimmers to Omaha.
The pool for the U.S. Olympic Trials will reflect some minor technological changes since the nation’s best swimmers last visited the CenturyLink Center. Two specific innovations also will alleviate some of the time and difficulty involved in constructing the 50-meter pool, which recently began its shipping journey from Castiglione, Italy.
NBC Olympics will present an unprecedented 76 hours of coverage of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials across NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra – including more than 60 hours of coverage in primetime – in the months leading up to the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
