Indiana Swimmers, Divers to Compete at U.S. Olympic Team Trials


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Forty athletes will represent the Indiana swimming and diving program at U.S. Olympic Team Trials between June 15-23, seeking qualification for the 2024 Paris Games.


Thirty-one Hoosiers will compete in the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials in Indianapolis, June 15-23. For the first time ever, the event will be staged on a football field as Lucas Oil Stadium plays host to the qualifying event. Tickets are on sale here.

Indiana University is the proud sponsor of Student Night at swim trials on Thursday, June 20, as fans with a valid student ID can enjoy discounted prices at concession stands.

Nine divers are set to participate in the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials, running June 17-23 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Fans can watch both meets on NBC platforms. Peacock will stream preliminaries, while final sessions are available both on NBC and Peacock.

What to Watch For

Indiana’s list of participants features a mix of former Olympians and first-time hopefuls. Swimmers Lilly King and Blake Pieroni and diver Jessica Parratto can book their tickets to a third Olympics, while swimmers Michael Brinegar and Cody Miller and diver Andrew Capobianco have the chance to punch their ticket for a second time.

A five-time Olympic medalist, King enters the 2024 trials as the No. 1 seed in the 100-meter breaststroke – with the only seed time under 1:05 – and the No. 2 seed in the 200-meter breaststroke. Current IU swimmer Josh Matheny is the No. 2 and 3 seeds in the same events, respectively. Indiana filled the men’s breaststroke events, totaling 11 entries between the two distances. Among the group, 2016 Olympian Cody Miller is the No. 6 seed in the 100 breast.

Joining Matheny as a heavy contender for a first-time Olympic berth, Anna Peplowski will look to build on her freestyle momentum after surging during the collegiate season. Peplowski was a medalist in the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle events at the NCAA Championships and will have her best shot as the No. 7 seed in the 200-meter freestyle – set to be one of the meet’s most competitive event.

The top two in each swimming event are expected to make the Olympic team individually, should they also have hit an Olympic qualifying time standard. Up to the top six are expected to make the team in the 100m and 200m freestyles for relays.

In Knoxville, Capobianco and Parratto will return to compete in the events that they earned medals from. A silver medalist in Tokyo with fellow Hoosier Michael Hixon, Capobianco will dive from the 3-meter springboard alongside a different IU teammate in Quinn Henninger. The pair competed together at the 2024 World Aquatics Championships in April Capobianco will also challenge in the individual 3-meter event against Henninger and Carson Tyler.

Tyler, the NCAA Champion in the 3-meter and platform diving events this spring, will compete in both events individually at trials. The rising senior was named the CSCAA Diver of the Year, Big Ten Diver of the Year and Big Ten Diver of the Championships after a dominant season on the boards.

Parratto will once again pair up with Arizona grad Delaney Schnell in the synchronized 10-meter event, from which the duo earned silver in Tokyo. More recently, Parratto and Schnell took bronze at the 2023 World Aquatics Championships. Parratto came out of retirement to pursue a third Olympics.

The winning team in the three synchro events makes the Olympic team. Individually, the top two men and top two women in springboard make the team. In platform, the men’s and women’s winners make the team.
