Swimmers, take your mark. Starting June 15, all eyes will be on Indianapolis as 796 swimmers compete for 52 coveted spots in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. Nine days of nonstop coverage on NBC will showcase both the citywide elevated infrastructure, new developments, and the Circle City's presence as a key competitor to host large-scale events. Less than one month from 300,000 visitors for The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500, the city is back at it to host the world's largest swim event in modern history. Indy's proven ability to deliver extraordinary experiences solidifies our reputation as a premier destination for major events.

“Indianapolis came in with a bid that was second to none,” Hinchey said. “And of course, the history we have there, the centennial history of the 1924 Trials and Games in Paris leads to what we’re doing this year. And then really the people of Indianapolis, the Indiana Sports Corp, are just phenomenal partners.” - Tim Hinchey, USA Swimming CEO


Indy is Innovative

Two-and-a-half pools will be built from the ground inside Lucas Oil Stadium, where 30K fans will gather each night to watch the top athletes in swimming compete for a ticket to the Paris Olympic Games. This is the first time in history a swimming pool has been constructed in an NFL football stadium, and with nine days of nonstop swimming, the city is touted for its ability to continually host large-scale events in its downtown core.

Downtown Transforms for Fans

Like Paris, but closer. Downtown Indy will be home to a 66-ft tall reimagining of the iconic Parisian landmark, the Eiffel Tower. Fabricated by the Latinas Welding Guild, the 20,000 pound Eiffel Tower - dubbed the "Indianapolis Tower" - will be a stunning photo opportunity and will offer an inside look to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Throughout Georgia Street and inside the Indiana Convention Center, fans will be able to take part in free concerts, the Toyota Aqua Zone, and USA Swimming Live during the nine days of Trials.
