What Will It Take to Pull Off 2024 Olympic Trials aka “The Meet of the Century”?

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

On the heels of the World Cup Series Finale in Indianapolis, SwimSwam sat down with USA Swimming’s Chief Commercial Officer, Shana Ferguson. Ferguson was not only overseeing the World Cup stop in Indy, but also taking time to prepare what she deems “The Meet of the Century”: the 2024 Olympic Trials, which will be held in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The CCO updates us on where USA Swimming is at in their preparation, including an artist’s rendition of what the venue will actually look like with all 3 (yes, 3) pools inside.
