In the media area during finals tonight, Michael Phelps said that he will not be swimming the men’s 200 free at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials.
With this update, Phelps’s first event will be the men’s 200 fly prelims on Tuesday.
Before the decision to drop the event, Phelps was seeded 14th. Since he will not be swimming here in Omaha, Phelps will most likely not be competing in the men’s 800 free relay in Rio.
Earlier this month, Phelps stated that he wanted to swim a quick enough time at the Longhorn Elite Invite that he could forgo the 200 free at this meet and still secure his spot on the relay, but he swam 1:48.73, falling to Townley Haas, Clark Smith, and Clay Youngquist of Texas.
However, since Bob Bowman is the head coach of the U.S. men’s Olympic Team, he still has the power to name Phelps to the Olympic relay.
