Omaha Drawing Big Crowds For U.S. Swimming Trials, Will Likely Surpass '08 Records
Published July 2, 2012
NO PLACE LIKE HOME: In Omaha, Tom Shatel wrote, "It's been a terrific week, better than 2008, the best Swim Trials in memory." It will "leave a high expectation to meet, or beat, in 2016, for anybody who wants to give it a go." USA Swimming Exec Dir Chuck Wielgus said that USA Swim "wants to open the bid process." Cliff "is noncommittal, also." Shatel noted it is "too early to say whether Omaha would host this extremely cool event a third straight time, in the summer of 2016." Shatel wrote, "The hunch here is, both sides will want to take a break and look around in 2016 -- with the understanding that it's so good here that it has to come back, possibly in eight years" (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 7/1).
