Towards the end of the summer, swimming season always kicks into high gear with some of the world's largest competitions taking place during the month of August.

Having started on August 6th and running through to the 10th, the U.S. National Championships in Irvine, California is one of America's biggest annual swim meets. Listed as the top national event in the United States, the competition boasts a wide range of events for both male and female competitors, many of which are members of the United States' national team.

This event, will help determine the swimmers that will go on to the USA National Team for next year's competition, and could very well help determine the roster for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Some of the big names competing are Michael Phelps, who is the most decorated Olympian of all time, Missy Franklin, who rose into the spotlight during the London games, and Ryan Lochte​, who became so popular during the most recent Summer Olympics he ended up having his own reality show.

According to the Los Angeles Daily News, "Lochte and Phelps are both attempting to qualify for another U.S. national team to compete at the Pan Pacific meet Aug. 21-25 in Gold Coast, Australia, and ultimately the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia."

Even the best competitors require the right fit and function of swimsuit to perform well. That is why many of these athletes try out many swimsuits for racing before choosing one to compete in.
