The U.S. Olympic swimming team is Paris-ready.

A total of 46 American pool swimmers -- 26 men and 20 women -- qualified for the 2024 Paris Games during the U.S. Olympic swimming trials. The trials, which took place over nine days at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, wrapped up on Sunday.

The roster is headlined by Team USA stars Katie Ledecky and Caeleb Dressel, both of whom are defending Olympic champions in multiple individual events.

Ledecky won four freestyle events at the trials (200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m), but she will skip the 200m at the Olympics to focus on the 4x200m freestyle relay. Ledecky is the three-time defending 800m champion and the reigning 1500m champion. She'll also be looking to reclaim the 400m title after finishing second to Australia's Ariarne Titmus at the pandemic-delayed 2020 Tokyo Games.

A seven-time Olympic champion, Ledecky sits two golds away from breaking American Jenny Thompson's all-time record among female swimmers.

Dressel qualified for two individual events, along with the 4x100m freestyle relay, at the trials by finishing first in the 50m freestyle and third in the 100m butterfly. He's the reigning Olympic champion in both.

Caeleb Dressel is officially heading to the Paris Olympics to defend his gold medal in the 50m freestyle.

Dressel also won gold in the 100m freestyle at the Tokyo Olympics, but he failed to qualify for the event this time around after placing third.

The other American swimmers headed to Paris to defend individual titles are Bobby Finke, the reigning 800m and 1500m freestyles champion, and Chase Kalisz, the reigning 400m individual medley champion.

The trials also saw world records get by broken by Regan Smith and the University of Virginia's Gretchen Walsh. Smith, who was a three-time medalist in her Olympic debut in Tokyo, broke the 100m backstroke world record with a time of 57.13 seconds in the final, topping the previous mark of 57.33 set by Australia's Kaylee McKeown in 2023.

U.S. swimmer Regan Smith set a new world record in the 100m backstroke at the U.S. Swim Trials on Tuesday.

And Walsh set a new world record in the 100m butterfly with a time of 55.18 seconds in the semis, besting the previous record of 55.48 seconds set by Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom all the way back in 2016.

Gretchen Walsh shattered the world record in the women’s 100-meter butterfly semifinals on Saturday night, the opening night of the U.S. trials.

Smith and Walsh each qualified for three events in total. Smith was victorious in all three of the races she qualified for (100m backstroke, 200m backstroke, 200m butterfly) while Walsh won the 100m butterfly.

Two other swimmers who made waves at the trials were Kate Douglass and Notre Dame's Chris Guiliano. Douglass, who earned a 200m individual medley bronze in her Olympic debut in Tokyo, won three individual events (100m freestyle, 200m breaststroke, 200m IM) and earned a spot on the 4x100m freestyle relay team.

Guiliano, meanwhile, beat Dressel to win the 100m freestyle and qualified for five total freestyle events (50m, 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay, 4x200m relay) in what will be his Olympic debut.
