Arguably, all eyes will be on Caeleb Dressel, Ryan Lochte, Lilly King, Ryan Murphy, Anthony Ervin, Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky along with upcoming US superstars at the US Olympic swimming trials.

Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky are favorites to emerge victorious in the US Olympic Swimming trials by winning in five and six events, respectively, including relays.

Caeleb Dressel, who won six gold medals at the 2019 World Championships, might be a part of the US Swimming team in seven events.

Only Michael Phelps has represented in more events – eight at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

The 36-year-old Ryan Lochte, who will be taking part in the 200m individual medley, could become the oldest swimmer to make it to the US Swimming team. He even holds the world record in the 200m IM. He will be one to look out for at the US Olympic swimming trials.

The 100m breaststroke could belong to Lilly King, with Ryan Murphy aiming to hog the limelight in 100m and 200m backstrokes at the US Olympic swimming trials.
