Swimmers compete for spots at the two biggest international meets before the 2020 Olympics at the U.S. Championships, live on NBC Sports this week.

The sport’s elite gather in Irvine, Calif., including Katie LedeckySimone ManuelLilly KingRyan LochteCaeleb Dressel and Chase Kalisz.

They’re vying for spots at August’s Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo. The U.S. roster will include no more than 26 men and 26 women, taking up to the top four finishers per individual Olympic program event in Irvine.

If a swimmer makes the Pan Pacs team, he or she can swim any event at Pan Pacs. That’s key, because the team for the 2019 World Championships in South Korea will be the two fastest swimmers per individual Olympic event using times from 2018 nationals or Pan Pacs.

That makes these nationals the biggest domestic meet between now and the 2020 Olympic Trials.
