USA Swimming announces plans for August return


USA Swimming is planning a return to the pool.

Though, no one is quite sure how it will all play out during the coronavirus pandemic.

The national governing body unveiled a tentative schedule Monday that begins with a series of regional events in August before a national lineup of meets kicks off in early November — all leading up to next summer’s Olympic trials in Omaha, Nebraska, and the Tokyo Games.

“It gives us a little bit of hope,” Hali Flickinger, a 2016 Olympian who trains in Arizona, told The Associated Press. “Everything is kind of stale right now. I have no idea what’s going to happen — nobody does — but at least we have something to look forward to in the future.”

Tentative is the key word, for sure.
