The U.S. Olympic Trials are almost upon us, and the stakes will be very high for every swimmer that dives into the pool in Omaha.
Swimming superstars Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte have to qualify for the London Games just like everyone else. The Olympic Trials will bring us the next edition of the Phelps and Lochte rivalry as they are set to compete against each other in multiple races.
Although the stakes are high for all the competitors, the bar is set even higher for certain swimmers. Some are under pressure due to past success, while another is trying to prove that coming out of retirement was the right decision.
