The Toyota U.S. Open meet at the Greensboro Aquatic Center featured record-setting times by some of North Carolina’s top swimmers. Because of the COVID-19 situation, the U.S. Open was held in multiple locations around the country and times compared to rank swimmers by order of finish.

Elite club swimmers, along with college and professional swimmers, competed in the meets. NCS club swimmers set several NCS long course records over the course of the three-day timed final meet.
