A day after three talented and speedy athletes officially punched their tickets to the Rio Olympic Games, the 2016 US Olympic Swimming Trials resumed June 27 in Omaha with a second day of competition in the pool. Here's a look at the three finals that were contested and the identities of the athletes who joined day one qualifiers Connor Jaeger, Maya DiRado, and Chase Kalisz on Team USA's roster.

Women's 100 meter butterfly

The first swimming final contested on day two was the women's 100 meter fly, and all eyes were on top qualifiers Dana Vollmer and Kelsi Worrell, who swam side-by-side in the center lanes.

In the end, it was Worrell who emerged victorious and nabbed her first-ever Olympic team berth by posting the second fastest time (56.48) in the world in the event this year.

Vollmer, atriple gold medalist from the 2012 London Olympics who emerged from retirement after giving birth to her son last year, placed second behind Worrell. She is likely to be named to the team later in the week, and could become the first American swimmerto win Olympic gold after giving birth.

Men's 100 meter breaststroke

The second final on the roster --after Ryan Lochte successfully advanced to the final of the men's 400 meter free--was the men's 100 meter breast. Kevin Cordes, who set a new American Record during the event semifinals yesterday, took the win to claim his first-ever Olympic team berth. He'll likely be joined on the roster by second-place finisher Cody Miller.

Women's 400 meter freestyle

The third and final Rio Olympic berth awarded during day two of the trials went to 2012 London Games phenom Katie Ledecky, who came close to beating her own World Record before fading in the last 50 meters but still out-touched second-place finisher (and her likely Rio teammate)LeahSmithfor the win.

Swimming legend Michael Phelps--who will compete for his own chance to go to Rio later in the week-- was on hand to cheer Ledecky on.

More athleteswill earn berths to compete at the Rio Olympic Games when the 2016 US Olympic Swimming Trials continue June 28.
