Description

The United States is assembling an Olympic swimming team that Michael Phelps hardly recognizes. Nearly halfway through the eight-day trials, the team bound for the Rio Olympics next month has as many as 17 first-timers. Stalwarts who didn't make the cut include Missy Franklin, Natalie Coughlin, Matt Grevers, Tyler Clary and Jessica Hardy. Phelps and teenager Katie Ledecky appear to be the only sure things at the meet. Phelps described the Rio Olympics as more pressure-packed than the Olympics.
