MADISON, Wis. -- A total of 21 student-athletes from the Wisconsin men's and women's swimming and diving teams competed at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials last week in Omaha, Neb.

With nearly 100 swimmers in each event, only the top two finishers in each event earned a spot on the U.S. squad headed for London this summer. While no Badgers qualified for the Olympic team, there were plenty of good showings by the Wisconsin men and women.

Junior Michael Weiss opened the meet with the sixth-fastest times in the prelims of the 400-meter individual medley, advancing him to the finals, where he raced against Ryan Lochte and current world record-holder Michael Phelps. Weiss went on to finish fifth in the event.

Ashley Wanland kept up the fast start for Wisconsin swimmers by placing sixth in the 100 breaststroke on the second day of competition. In the semifinals on the same day, she improved her time by nearly a full second to take the fourth seed in the finals. Swimming in the finals on the third day, Wanland ended her run in the 100 breast with an eighth-place finish. Weiss also earned a second swim on the second day, finishing 16th in the 200 freestyle semifinals.

On the fifth day of competition, Brittany Kimmitt placed 15th in the prelims of the 200 breast, before finishing 14th in the semifinals later the same day.

With the U.S. Olympic trials completed, the Badgers now turn their focus to the U.S. Open in Indianapolis, Aug. 7-11.
