Loaded Lineup for Trials Autograph Sessions

  3 Braden Keith | June 20th, 2012 | National, News, U.S. Olympic Trials

USA Swimming has put together a loaded lineup for the AquaZone autograph sessions this year, including a number of Olympic legends current and past.

Kicking the festivities off will be Debbie Phelps, mother of Michael on Monday during prelims. She will be followed by swimming legends Pablo Morales andAmanda Beard.

Other big names who will be on the main stage signing include Rowdy Gaines, Aaron Peirsol, Peter Vanderkaay, Rebecca Soni, Gary Hall, Jr., Josh Davis, Brooke Bennett, Cullen Jones, Margaret Hoelzer, Kaitlin Sandeno, Caroline Burckle, Ian Crocker, and our very own 1992 Olympic gold medalist Mel Stewart. There’s going to be a whole lot of hardware parading across that stage.

In addition, on Wednesday at noon, the SwimSwam crew will take over the stage for an hour of fun (if you really want, we’ll sign some autographs too).
