The Longhorn Elite Invitational is one of swimming's final meets before the U.S. Olympic Trials, which are around the corner as we gear up for the 2012 Summer Games in London. 

These tuneups are a good way to gauge athletes as they prepare to compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. They can also be a time to catch up on what you have missed and learn about newcomers if you only follow swimming once every four years.

This year, Olympic favorites and hopefuls Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin, Garrett Weber-Gale, Amanda Weir, Kathleen Hersey and Allison Schmitt will be competing in the event. Here are their stories.

Note: you can catch the Longhorn Elite Invitational on the Longhorn Network and online from June 1-3.
