Olympic-qualifying event confirmed for the CHI Health Center Omaha, June 13-20, 2021
Following unprecedented events around the globe, including the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and many of the associated qualifying competitions, USA Swimming today announced that it has rescheduled its 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming to June 13-20, 2021 at the CHI Health Center Omaha, in Omaha, Nebraska.
The rescheduled Olympic Trials will be the sole qualifier for pool swimmers on the U.S. Olympic Team for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan in July 2021. The 2021 Olympic Trials event schedule will remain the same across the 15-session, eight-day event.
“We are incredibly thankful to the USOPC, NBC, the Omaha Sports Commission, the Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority and every other partner involved in successfully moving an event of this magnitude to new dates that will best prepare our team to succeed in Tokyo in 2021,” USA Swimming Chief Operating Officer Mike Unger said. “Fans can expect to witness the same incredible level of competition and entertainment throughout this highly-anticipated event.”
Ticket purchasers will have two options for the 2021 Olympic Trials event:
· reissuance of new tickets in the same seats for the same session(s)
· ticket refunds within six months of the rescheduling announcement via the original point of purchase
Remaining tickets can be purchased through any Ticketmaster outlet nationwide or online at ticketmaster.com/swimtrials20, as well as at the CHI Health Center Omaha box office.
As of April 10, 2020, 1,213 athletes have qualified to compete at the Olympic Trials. At this time, we anticipate these successful trials cuts will be accepted for the 2021 event. Updated Trials qualifying standards will be released ahead of the official return to competition across the U.S.
