The below U.S. Olympic trials TV schedule will help you get into Olympic mode real fast. While the 2016 Summer Olympics are less than three months away (Friday, Aug. 5 – Sunday, Aug. 21), U.S. athletes are in preparation for upcoming team trials. NBC Networks will be turning its full attention to the swimming trials late in June giving primetime coverage for eight nights straight at the Omaha, Nebraska, swimming trials. Michael Phelps (who holds the most Olympic medals in history, with 22 medals) is coming out of retirement to show the world he still has what it takes to compete at age 30. This will be Phelps’ fifth Olympics. All eyes also will be on Ryan Lochte, winner of 11 Olympic medals, and the charismatic Olympian who introduced us to “jeah!” (Remember, that E! series What Would Ryan Lochte Do?)
