2012 USA Olympic swimming trials back in Omaha

A bit announcement this week for Omaha. The 2012 U-S Olympic team swim trials are coming back to Omaha. Chuck Weilgus with USA Swimming made the official announcement Thursday and says Omaha was the first choice to host the event. He stated that the event in Omaha in 2008 was the best event they have held so it was an easy decision to make.
Weilgus said that other city representatives wanted to bid for the event but USA Swimming wanted to make every attempt to return to Omaha before looking at other offers.
Now comes the logistics. With the construction of the new TD Ameritrade Ball Park located across the street from the Qwest Center, the event will come on the heels of that year’s College World Series.
