UPDATED INFO: Olympic Trials TV Schedule - Swimmers to Watch from LA

6/23 UPDATE:  Forgot to mention former TAQ coach, CJ (Celsea) Henry is also swimming next week at Trials.  Thank you Kelly & Digger for sending me that info. 

Celsea Henry aka CJ (Club Seminole/Florida State) 100FL (47), 100FR (79), 50FR (76)

Live Results can be viewed at under the Olympic Trials menu tab. 

NOTE:  ONLY THE FASTEST 2-4 HEATS (10 swimmers per heat) IN PRELIMS WILL BE SHOWN ON TV and they will be tape delayed...  To see live action of the lower heats you will need to watch the webcast on the usaswimming site.  OTs are prelims, semis, and finals in the under 400M distances so for example:  the women's 100FL on Monday is the prelim in AM/semis in PM/Final would be Tues PM.   I'm working on having a TV at the TAQ recruiting table at the City Summer Meet.

Link to prelims webcast live each day starting at 10:00 AM CST each day 



The Olympic Trials will be broadcast on TV beginning Monday.   Tune in to see swimmers from Louisiana & LSU battle for a spot on the US Team (list below schedule).   LSU has 8 swimmers + 2 signees attending trials.   Bet you didn't know that you had that many potential Olympians on deck at the LSU NAT.
