SwimOutlet Blog: Hey Haley, how’s it feel to be in the Olympic year, just 6 months away from Rio – especially since you’ve already qualified?
Haley Anderson: It's crazy that we are already four months out! This year has really flown by! Right now we are in the thick of training and since I have already qualified it means I can really put my focus on Rio and not have to worry about anything in between. Makes the training plan a bit easier to map out.

Haley Anderson: London was such a crazy whirlwind that I really had no time to take a breather and enjoy the journey. Now this go around I'm really making sure I am enjoying the process and the journey and taking time to be grateful for everything.

Our long time partner, Fitter and Faster Swim Tour Presented by SwimOutlet.com, has announced an exclusive and elite camp for swimmers who have qualified for US Trials, their coaches and parents. Trials qualifiers are invited to Omaha, NE from April 1-3, 2016 to kick off their last three months of training and gain a competitive edge going into the biggest meet of their lives.
From April to June, we held our Omaha Video Contest. The videos were aimed at promoting a positive message about the sport of swimming. It was a success! Contestants were asked to submit a video responding to the question: "How has swimming inspired you?" The grand prize winner received an all-expenses paid trip to Omaha for Swim Trials (a $6,000 value including flight, hotel, 2 tickets to the meets, and $150 spending cash per day)! We received a lot of video entries. Our judges had a tough decision to make, but finally came to a verdict. Continue Reading...
In honor of the Swim Trials taking place this week, we launched our very first billboard in Omaha, Nebraska! There will be over 100,000 swimming fans coming in for the week-long event.
In addition, we also have a mobile billboard traveling around Omaha! The billboard is promoting a unique contest! To participate, all you have to do is take a picture of the mobile billboard and post it on the SwimOutlet.com Facebook page. This automatically enters you in the contest, giving you the chance to be one of randomly selected winners. We will be selecting 100’s of random winners daily from June 24 until July 2. Winners will be receiving a SURPRISE SwimOutlet.com gift!
