January 31, 2017

This year's U.S. World Championship trials for individual Olympic events will be held in Indianapolis from May 19-21.

Indianapolis-based USA Diving made the announcement Tuesday.

The event is set for the Indiana University Natatorium on the campus of IUPUI, also the site of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for diving.

The team's final eight spots will be determined at the trials—with two Americans qualifying in each of the men's and women's the 3-meter and 10-meter events.

Qualifiers will compete in Budapest, Hungary, from July 14-22.

The synchronized diving teams will be decided at the national championships in Atlanta from April 12-15.

Olympic silver medalists Michael Hixon and Steele Johnson, and Maria Coburn and Alison Gibson have already qualified for the world championships.
