Your Guide To All Of The International Olympic Swimming Trial Meet Changes

As part of the world at large, the swimming community near and far has been severely impacted by the unfolding of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We have seen unprecedented scores of meets and events cancelled or postponed, which would wreak havoc at any time, but especially in the context of entering the final months to qualify for a Summer Olympic Games.
