The short list of cities is getting smaller and smaller and Greensboro is getting closer and closer to possibly hosting the 2016 US Olympic Swim Trials. Indianapolis is now out of the running and the only cities left are Greensboro, Omaha, San Antonio and St Louis. Greensboro already has an advantage over San Antonio and St Louis. The swim committee crossed Indianapolis out because the facility (domed stadium) was too big and didn't provide an intimate setting. The facilities in St Louis and San Antonio are also big domed stadiums. That being said Greensboro's only real competition is Omaha. But even then Greensboro has a big advantage over Omaha being able to host every thing under one roof with more flexibility of the new swim center. That advantage is why Greensboro is being selected for the second time to host the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships. Omaha hosted the last two trials so if they are looking for a different city, Greensboro is the likely choice. Last time, all eight days were televised in prime time on NBC and posted the highest ratings in their time slots.
