Eighteen members of the PUCSDT family — past, present and future — will meet in Omaha, Neb., at the end of the month to compete in one of the most prestigious swimming events in the world, the U.S. Olympic Trials.

The Trials, which singlehandedly determines the U.S. squad that will head to the 2016 Rio Games, will be held June 26-July 3 in the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska. The seventeen Princeton swimmers, which range from 2014 First-Team All-America honoree Lisa Boyce '14 to five incoming Tigers, have earned Trials cuts in a total of 30 different events.

Five Princetonians have won Olympic medals; the last to do so was Nelson Diebel, who won a pair of golds at the 1992 Games.

There are currently a trio viewing parties for alumni in different areas of the country:
