Tickets are selling fast for the 2004 Olympic Trials to be held in July 2004 in Long Beach. This should be one of the fastest US trials ever (Couglin and Phelps alone should put on a show worth travelling 3,000 miles). We've got our tickets.

I went to see the olympic trials way back in 1976 since I did live about 20 miles from Long Beach then. The tickets back in those days were cheap. I look at the prices on the computer and they were expensive. Now I live in Arizona and I doubt I want to travel to see it in person. I think that they should honor the past olympians in swimming that came from California there. After all in the last olympic trials they honored the 1976 men's team. It is interesting that they are using a portable pool for the meet. The one use in 1976 was at Belmont shores but in 1976 the pool could not be older than 10 years old, but now Belmont is approching 35 years. So to get the Olympic trials they are using the modern portable pools.
