Breaststrokers Kaitlyn Dobler And Daniel Roy Shockingly Absent from 2024 US Olympic Trials

The highly anticipated 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials, set to take place from June 15-23 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN, has left swimming fans stunned with the absence of two top contenders. Kaitlyn Dobler and Daniel Roy, both renowned breaststrokers, have not been entered in the competition, as revealed by the pre-scratch psych sheets.

Kaitlyn Dobler, a consistent ‘A’ finalist at the national level, has been a standout performer in recent years. Despite her impressive track record, including strong showings at the 2020 Wave II Trials and the 2022 International Team Trials, Dobler’s name is missing from the lineup. Her absence comes as a surprise to many, given her ranking as the 5th fastest American in the 100 breast this season.

On the men’s side, Daniel Roy’s absence has also raised eyebrows among swimming enthusiasts. After making a comeback to the sport earlier this year and posting impressive times, including the #7 time in the world for the 200 breaststroke, Roy’s decision to not compete in the Olympic Trials has left fans puzzled.

SwimSwam has attempted to reach out to Dobler for clarification on her absence, but as of now, no response has been received. Meanwhile, Roy, who recently finished his collegiate career at Stanford, has not provided any explanation for his decision to skip the trials.

As the swimming community eagerly awaits further updates on this unexpected development, the absence of Dobler and Roy from the 2024 US Olympic Trials remains a topic of speculation and intrigue.
