With three of his swimmers already on the Olympic team, Todd DeSorbo has all but locked up a spot as a women’s team assistant in Tokyo.

Night 4 of the US Olympic Trials saw many qualify for their first Olympic team as well as some veterans. Here are the top shots from the electric night.

After qualifying for Tokyo in the 200/400 free, Kieran Smith has decided to compete for one of the 4×100 free relay spots over the 800 free.

Dressel seems to be gearing up for his other events. He scratched the 200 free semifinal last night, and now his only event of the morning: the 200 fly.
