Olympic photos: U.S. men's swimming trials

1

Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps, as expected, have been the stars so far of the U.S. men's Olympic swimming trials in Omaha. Phelps is on track to qualify for eight events in London, making him the most dominant swimmer of his era.

Lochte has been the it guy of the U.S. team (with that body, it's easy to see why) and he and Phelps look poised to face off in a couple of events in a month. They are both competitive and admiring of each other, so this looks like a fun rivalry.

Courtesy of US PRESSWIRE, here are some images of the men in the pool this week:
