Summary of the live broadcast of the second day

2024 US Olympic Trials

The second day of the nine-day U.S. Olympic Trials begins from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this morning with preliminary heats in five events: the men’s 200 free, the men’s 400 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke and women’s 200 freestyle.

Both 200 free events will carry a bit of extra weight this morning with up to six swimmers earning Olympic relay berths in the final, and any mistake could see someone miss out on the top 16 – we saw two favorites for the relay; Bella Sims And Claire Weinsteinwill miss the 400 free final on Saturday, so all eyes will be on them.

Carson Foster He is set to face a tough double, with the men’s 200m freestyle and men’s 400m freestyle back-to-back this morning. Foster will be looking to cement his place in the 800 free relay in the 200 free, and should be able to comfortably qualify for the 400 free final, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see him racing in both events this morning.

Tonight, the 400m free will be first on the schedule, with the 200m freestyle semi-final later after two events, with the women’s 100m fly final in between.

The men’s 200 free will be themed Luke HobsonWho won bronze in this event at the 2024 World Championships, while Aaron Shackle And Kieran Smith He will return to the water after earning Olympic qualifying points (Smith was not officially booked) last night in the 400 free.

At 400 IM it will be Foster and Chase Kalish As a big favorite, with Jay Litherland Seeded third and looking to make his third straight Olympic team (along with Kalish) in the event. Another big competitor, David Johnstonwill look to bounce back after narrowly missing out on the top two places last night in the 400 free.

The women’s 100 breaststroke will give us a look at the last two Olympic champions in the event, Lily King And Lydia Jacoby. These are the two favorites for roster spots in the final, with Caitlin Dobler The only swimmer on paper who has a realistic chance of an upset.

There is a similar scenario in the men’s 100m backstroke, where it is Ryan Murphy And Hunter Armstrong It comes out as a huge favorite, though Justin Reese And Destin Lasko Both were under 53 recently and Shane Casas He is always someone to watch.

This will be the first swim of the meet for Casas, who has better qualifying chances later in the meet in the 100 fly and 200 fly… but can he pull off the upset here?

The morning will conclude with the women’s 200 freestyle, and as mentioned above, Sims and Weinstein will be under a little pressure to run smoothly after tough outings in the 400 freestyle.

Katie Ledecky She may end up being scratched for the event at some point, but for now she is the top seed.
