INDIANAPOLIS -- Six Boilers are competing at USA Swimming's annual U.S. Open meet the week of Aug. 7-11. Purdue's schedule and results are available here. This page will be updated throughout the week.
While the U.S. Open may not feature the nation's fastest swimmers during Olympic years like this one, there are expected to be numerous fast times posted at the Indiana University Natatorium on the campus of IUPUI in Downtown Indianapolis this week.
All six Boilers competing at the U.S. Open also raced the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Omaha earlier this summer. Luke Trimmer (400, 800 and 1500 free) is scheduled to compete in a team-high three individual events this week. Danny Tucker (50 and 100 free) and Brian Kiel (100 and 200 back) are also entered in multiple events.
The Purdue men will have relay foursomes competing in the 4x100 free and 4x100 medley relays as well. All events at the U.S. Open are long course meters and feature 50-meter lengths of the pool.
