USA Swimming Olympic Roster 2016: Meet the Team for Rio

Tom Shields


Event: Men's 200m Fly, Men's 100m Fly


Shields, 25, heads to his first Olympic Games after coming up short in trials in both 2008 and 2012. At the 2015 World Championships, he captured gold in the 400m medley relay and finished fourth in 100m butterfly. He also came in eighth in the 200m butterfly during that same competition, but he looked much stronger during trials, as he pushed Michael Phelps to the end before finishing second to qualify. (Getty)
