Where are the Swimmers Representing Team USA At the 2024 Olympics From?

Any time a swimmer from Indiana was announced at the 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials in Lucas Oil Stadium, they were greeted with a huge cheer from their home state crowd.

The Indiana fans had a lot to cheer about–lots more than just their swimmers stepping up to the blocks. Based on swimmers’ listed hometowns, Indiana put more swimmers than any other state on the U.S. Olympic team. Six swimmers call Indiana home: Drew Kibler, Lilly King, Blake Pieroni, Aaron Shackell, Alex Shackell, and Luke Whitlock.

Note: Hometown data collected from USA Swimming and Team USA where available, or swimmer’s college roster as of 6.28.24
Five of the six Indiana natives still train in-state. And while the Hoosier state would lose Kibler if this map was arranged by training site rather than home state, they’d also gain swimmers like Anna Peplowski, Mariah Denigan, and Josh Matheny, who train at Indiana University with King and Pieroni.

In all, swimmers from 23 different states will represent the U.S. in Paris. The majority of those states (13) put multiple swimmers on the team, while ten are sending a sole representative.

The map includes both pool and open water swimmers. Katie Grimes would appear on the list either way as she’s qualified for both pool and open water swimming, but adding the open water swimmers gives Kentucky their sole representative this year (Denigan) and Pennsylvania a third representative in Ivan Puskovitch.

Behind Indiana’s six swimmers, Maryland and Florida are tied for second highest number of swimmers on the roster. Both states have four swimmers each. Erin Gemmell is the only first time Olympian from either state. Maryland’s Katie Ledecky, Phoebe Bacon, Chase Kalisz and Florida’s Caeleb Dressel, Bobby Finke, Ryan Murphyand Emma Weyant have already been to at least one Olympic Games.

Where are the AUS swimmers in Paris from?

Queensland – Australia’s ‘Florida’ – population 5 million – and about 98% of the AUS team.

41% born in QLD, 59% went through juniors in QLD and 73% currently train at clubs in QLD.

Wow, sad to see the results of California but not totally surprising. What’s the problem? You could say Water Polo and you can blame the economy. I think you can also point to the vast number of club teams on top of each other in the state. Waters down the training groups and waters down the quality of coaching.

But if you look at College swimming, you see the same thing happening. Other than Cal, what California D1 college is doing better today than they were 15-20 years ago. Not USC, Stanford, UCLA, or UCSB.

Agree, in Southern California College swimming options are very limited based on the number of colleges that no longer offer swimming. Long Beach State, Cal State Fullerton, UCLA (Men) the list goes on do not offer swimming . Athletes are not focused on swimming in colleges like they do in other parts of the country if they do not plan to leave the state. Many of these colleges had swim teams years ago.

There is also a lot of contentiousness in Southern California among coaches. If they all worked together, maybe they can figure it out like Ron Aiken has at Sandpiper.

Waterpolo does a better job of building the base where Southern California swimming only seems to… Read more »

Off topic but where is the US roster for Junior Pan Pacs?

Nothing has been announced yet, though we’ve gotten a handful of press releases that lead me to believe that the team has been named, at least privately.

Katharine Berkoff is the first Montanan to make an Olympic swim team, I think. That is a huge deal. At least to me, and other MT swim nerds. Before her, I think our best results were some semi finalists at trials. Super proud of her collegiate and international achievements!

Enjoy Paris, Katharine!! Relax, have fun, and go fast!!

That doesn’t count. Cody’s punched in chest takes a couple of inches off.

No. Erik Vendt comes to mind. Ed Moses. Cody Miller as others have said. I’m sure there are others.

Caeleb is from green cove springs, not op. Fun fact: he grew up in a county without a single chlorinated public pool.

About Sophie Kaufman

Sophie Kaufman

Sophie grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, which means yes, she does root for the Bruins, but try not to hold that against her. At 9, she joined her local club team because her best friend convinced her it would be fun. Shoulder surgery ended her competitive swimming days long ago, …
