USA Swimming Reveals Event Order For 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials

The event order for the 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials has been released.

As expected, the schedule mimics the new nine-day format that was confirmed for the 2024 Olympic Games last year, with events now spread out over 17 sessions compared to the 15 we’ve seen in years past.

The only difference between the two schedules is that there will be no relays at Trials. See the full schedule below:

The new schedule resolves several notable event conflicts some of the top U.S. swimmers have had in the past at both Trials and major international meets, including Katie Ledecky‘s 200 free/1500 free, and it also opens the door for male swimmers (Carson Foster?) to race both the 400 free and 400 IM.

The men’s 200 back final will now only conflict with the 200 IM semis rather than the final, while Michael Andrew now faces a tough task if he wants to swim the 200 IM in Paris, as the final comes shortly after the 50 free final.

See a full breakdown of the event conflicts/resolutions with the new schedule here.

The Trials will run from June 15-23, 2024, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
