After an emotional (both good and bad) finals on night three, the 2012 U.S Olympic roster as we know is, for the most part, gone.
Thus far, there are no defending Olympic Trial champions on the roster from 2012. The only “returner” is Katie Ledecky, who has only made it in the 400 free so far for Rio. She did not swim the 400 free at the Olympics in London, though.
Elisabeth Beisel is also returning, but she is “unofficial” with being second in the 400 IM and did not defend her championship title.
Also, Connor Jaeger was a silver medalist in the 1500, so he’s not a defending champion but he has a chance of being the new 2016 Olympic Trial champion Sunday night.
Conor Dwyer, who placed 2nd in the 200 free tonight, went in 2012 in the 400 free (2nd at OT’s) and the 400 free relay.
We have Michael Phelps to look forward to as a possible defending champion in the 200 fly tomorrow night. Until then, we have a new roster in every single event, and new “official” Olympians.
