It's been an exciting week because this week started the USA Swimming Olympic Trials and we've watching them religiously every evening. Did you know that you can watch them too every night on NBC?
The preliminaries air at 11:00 am EST on NBC Sports and the Finals start at 7:45 pm EST on NBC. The trials are exciting and entertaining to watch and it truly is a site to see these amazing athletes compete for the top three spots in each swimming style. Swimmers compete now through July 2nd.
The kids are really enjoying the trials... I love watching them discuss the swimming style and swimmers amongst themselves...
Michael Phelps qualified for his fourth Olympic (yes, fourth... amazing) event Thursday at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, winning the men’s 200m butterfly with a time of 1:53.65.
One of the most thrilling stories in the 200 breast stroke is Amanda Beard, who, if she qualifies for the team in this event, will have qualified for five Olympic Games. She is the fifth seed after this morning’s prelims in 2:27.07.
