The growing list of USC Olympians should continue to swell this week in Omaha, Neb., as 25 Trojans swim for a ticket to London 2012 at the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials (June 25 to July 2).

Current Trojan Haley Anderson is playing with house money as she has already qualified for the open water 10K.  The distance specialist, who won an individual NCAA title in the 500 free this year, will compete in five events headlined by the 800 free.

Of course, Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni (pictured) will be in action.  She is a favorite to win both the 100m and 200m breast, but she must qualify first.

On the men's side, rising senior All-American Alex Lendrum has a full slate of three events, including a seeded spot in the 200m back.  

Eight international Trojan swimmers have already qualified for the Olympics led by recent graduate Katinka Hosszu, who will swim four events for Hungary, and former Olympic gold medalist Ous Mellouli from Tunisia.
