While many eyes in the competitive swimming world will be interested in the times produced by Michael Phelps (entered in the 100 and 200 freestyle, 100 and 200 butterfly and 200 IM) and Ryan Lochte (100 and 200 freestyle, 200 backstroke, 100 butterfly, 200 and 400 IM) at the United States Olympic Swimming Trials held between June 26th and July 3rd, our interest will be on the performances by established open water swimmers.
