Phelps goes for 5th Olympics; Ledecky, Lochte in the pool

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Michael Phelps is going for his fifth — and he promises — last Olympics. Katie Ledecky is seeking to extend her dominance. Natalie Coughlin wants to end her career by making history. Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin are back, too.

The big names and some you have yet to know are in Omaha for the U.S. Olympic swimming trials. The eight-day meet begins Sunday in a temporary pool inside the sold-out CenturyLink Center, where Ledecky burst on the scene four years ago with a victory in the 800-meter freestyle and later a gold medal at the London Games.

"There's more pressure here than at the Olympics, and it's harder here," Phelps said.
