Now that’s what we call going for gold. Since the US Olympic Swim Team Trials kicked off on Saturday, June 15, a few Indiana swimmers have qualified for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Let’s get to know these swimmers and what they bring to Team USA.

Please note: The official Team USA swim roster will be released on Sunday, June 23. Some of the below athletes have tentatively qualified.

Lilly King

With a spot secured on Team USA, the Paris Games will be King’s third Olympic appearance. The former IU Bloomington swimmer has been the world record holder for the women’s 100-meter breaststroke since 2017.

Aaron Shackell

This Carmel Swim Club athlete was the first American swimmer to qualify for Paris after winning the finals of the men’s 400-meter freestyle earlier this week. The 19-year-old swimmer spent this past fall at the University of California before announcing his return to Carmel to train as an Olympic redshirt.
