Mike Unger, USA Swimming Chief Operating Officer said, “We’re looking forward to two great meets later this year at the state-of-the-art Greensboro Aquatic Center.”

The 2018 Winter National Championships will kick-off the qualifying period for the 2020 Olympic Trials, with an exciting run to the next Olympics games in Tokyo.

The event will be held November 28 – December 1, 2018 and will feature about 800 swimmers. The event is also returning to the GAC for the first time since 2014. It includes long-course meters meet and swimmers can post qualifying times for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

Then swimmers will take over Greensboro once again the following week. The GAC will host more than 1,200 swimmers for the 2018 Speedo Winter Junior Championships – East. It’s a short course yards meet.

Susan Braman, GAC Manager said, “We’re thrilled to be awarded these two elite events and continue to strengthen our outstanding relationship with USA Swimming.”
