USA Swimming Olympic Trials Live Stream: Watch Day 4 Finals Online!
The USA Swimming Olympic trials enters its fourth day on Wednesday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream of the final events. Watch below!
Michael Phelps will be competing in the 200-meter butterfly finals and needs to finish in first or second place to nab a spot in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Phelps scored the fastest time of both semifinal heats, and there’s a good chance he’ll be advancing to his fifth olympics. However, the athlete has said in interviews that this time would have a new meaning for him, as his fiancee Nicole Johnson and newborn son Boomer will be there to cheer him on.
Phelps had originally entered both the 100- and 200-meter freestyle races but opted not to compete in those in order to stay well rested for his more important individual races, which include the 100-meter butterfly, 200-meter butterfly, and 200-meter Individual Medley.
Not swimming is Ryan Lochte, who has already won himself a spot in the Rio Olympics after finishing fourth place in the 200-meter freestyle race, which clinched him a spot on the 4×200 relay team. He decided not to compete in Wednesday night’s semifinals because he’s still recovering from a groin injury sustained last Sunday. Instead, the swimmer will be preparing for Thursday’s 200-meter individual medley. Meanwhile, Missy Franklin and Katie Ledecky will both be competing Wednesday night in the 200-meter freestyle finals.
