"We thank the University of Arizona, including Athletic Director Greg Byrne and Director of Operations Dr. Michele Mitchell, for offering the university's facilities for this event, and we appreciate the City of Tucson's support on the event bid. The quality of the university's facilities, with Dr. Mitchell's prominence in our nation's diving history, served us well on this bid."

Other cities under consideration include Atlanta, GA; Greensboro, N.C.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Minneapolis, Minn.; and Riverside, Calif.

"We are thrilled to see so many incredible cities express an interest in hosting our Olympic Trials.
