As preparations continue for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, LFSN's Nick Pierce had a chance to interview Liberty freshman Alicia Finnigan.
Finnigan will compete in the women's 200 meter butterfly tomorrow, with preliminary heats starting at approximately 11:19 a.m. Eastern. This year's Olympic Trials are being held at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb. If she records one of the 16 fastest times in morning prelims, she would qualify for Wednesday's evening semifinals. The final for the 200 fly will take place on Thursday evening. Live Results Psych Sheet Heat Sheet - June 29 Event Schedule TV/Streaming Schedule Live Webcast
