US swim team to train in San Antonio ahead of 2016 Rio Games


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The U.S. swimming team will train in San Antonio for nine days before completing its preparations in Puerto Rico for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The team will train outdoors at Northside Swim Center in San Antonio from July 13-21, 2016. It will be the site of this year's U.S. national championships in August.

After the team breaks camp in San Antonio, it will convene in San Juan, Puerto Rico, leading up to departing for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The Puerto Rico dates have yet to be announced.

The U.S. swimming team will be chosen at the Olympic trials in Omaha, Nebraska, from June 26-July 3, 2016.

USA Swimming announced the plans Thursday.
