UK’s Kyle Higgins will swim against Michael Phelps tonight at the US Olympic Trials

@UKSwimDive

Need something to watch tonight? Tune in to NBC around 8:55 p.m. to watch UK’s own Kyle Higgins swim against Michael Phelps in the semifinals of the 200 meter butterfly at the US Olympic Trials.

Earlier today, Higgins won Heat 6 with a time of 1:57.41, breaking the UK record by a full second, which, if you know swimming, is one hell of an accomplishment. Tonight, he’ll be in lane three of heat two, right next to Michael Phelps…you know, the greatest swimmer of all time:

The top eight finishers in the 200m fly semifinals advance to the final, which is tomorrow night at 8 p.m. on NBC. The top two finishers in the final will represent the United States in Rio in August.

You got this, Kyle. We’ll be watching.

    Kyle qualified for the final, about a second off his listed time above.

    An opportunity to be an Olympian is huge. Good Luck Kyle!
