St. Louis will get the Olympic spirit come 2016, when it will host the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for men's gymnastics.

The event determines which men will represent the U.S. in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. While it's the city's first time hosting Olympic trials, the city has worked with USA Gymnastics previously, hosting the organization's 2000 and 2012 national championships. Those events decide national champions as well as who continues on to Olympic trials.

Swimming news source SwimSwam is reporting today that Indianapolis is out to host the 2016 USA Swimming Olympic Trials - but which city is still in? You guessed it, St. Louis. The Gateway City is one of four remaining finalists, SwimSwam says. The others? San Antonio, Texas; Omaha, Neb.; and Greensboro, N.C.
