OMAHA, Neb. – Head coach Eric Hansen, the University of Arizona swimming team and Tucson Ford Aquatics travel to Olympic trials this week in Omaha, Neb.

The teams, known as Ford and Zona at the trials, have qualified 56 athletes – more than any other team in the country – for the event.

In addition, several Arizona swimmers have already qualified for the 2012 Olympics for their respective countries.

More than 1,850 swimmers will compete in the meet and only two from each event will qualify for the Olympic Games, beginning July 27 in London, England.

Of the swimmers competing for Arizona's teams this week, Amanda Beard, Matt Grevers and Christine Magnuson have qualified for the Olympic Games in previous years, earning three gold medals, five silver and one bronze.

The trials begin June 25 and will conclude on July 2, with preliminaries at 10 a.m. CT and finals at 6:45 p.m. CT each day and will be televised on NBC and NBC Sports Network.
