U.S. Swimming Trials See Plunge In Attendance Following Retirement Of Michael Phelps

SECOND FIDDLE TO OMAHA: In Indianapolis, David Woods reported renovation of the IU Natatorium "could cost nearly" $20M. The "earliest another world team trials could be sited here" is '17. The '16 Olympic Trials "will be held in a temporary pool" in Omaha, as they were in '12 and '08. Indianapolis was "unsuccessful in its bid" for the '16 trials, "proposing Lucas Oil Stadium as the venue." USA Swimming Events & Marketing Dir Dean Ekeren said that there "have been talks about helping to finance Natatorium renovation but that the national governing body has never done anything like that." Indianapolis is a "desirable destination because of experienced organizers, central location and seating capacity (4,700)." Configuration of the facility was "3,500 for these nationals, and the Natatorium remains the nation’s largest permanent aquatics venue" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 6/30).
