Local swimmers attend camp at Olympic swim trials


Planet Swim Aquatics of Ponte Vedra Beach held a summer swim camp for members of its Elite Swim Team in Omaha, Nebraska during the USA Olympic Swim Trials from June 29 - July 3, 2016. 

Planet Swim’s Elite Team was joined in Omaha by 14 Brazilian elite swimmers, who continued their camp the week of July 5 - July 9 at the Planet Swim pool in Ponte Vedra Beach. 

Led by Coach Gus Calado and Coach Alex Indiani, the camp enabled participants to train each day for two hours at the private Brownell-Talbott High School Theisen indoor swimming pool. Swim training was followed by team activities that included attendance each night at the USA Olympic Swim Trials held at the CenturyLink Center in downtown Omaha. 

Team members also had an opportunity to witness top swimmers in action, including the “duel in the pool” by Michael Phelps – the most decorated Olympian of all time – and Ryan Lochte in the Men’s 200 IM, Ryan Murphy in the 200 back, and Caeleb Dressel in the 50 and 100 free.
