The US Swimming Olympic Trials 2024 is all set to take place in June between 15-23 at the Lucas Stadium in Indianapolis. The event will determine two swimmers for each Olympic event to represent the USA Swimming team.

More than 700 swimmers which includes 408 men and 355 women have qualified for the 2024 swimming trials. For the women's division, the 50m freestyle event received the most number of qualifiers with 68 whereas, for the men's division, 69 swimmers qualified for the 100m breaststroke event which is the highest among all the events in the division.

The 19-year-old Sandpipers of Nevada swimmer, Bella Sims has qualified for 11 events in the trials which is the highest for an individual swimmer among both men and women combined. The two-time Olympic gold medalist, Regan Smith, and the four-time World Championships medalist, Katie Grimes follow suit with nine qualifications each.

In the men's division, Kieran Smith from the Ridgefield Aquatic Club and Carson Foster from Mason Manta Rays lead the way with eight qualifications each.

However, the number of qualified swimmers has drastically fallen when compared to the numbers during the 2021 US Swimming Olympic trials. The Men's 50m freestyle event has seen the most drastic fall in numbers with 105 swimmers less than that of 2021. Only two events (Women's 1500m freestyle and Men's 400m Individual Medley) have received more qualifications than the 2021 trials.

With all this said, let's know more about the qualifying standards for the US Swimming trials.
