KNOXVILLE, TN - More than 2,000 fans flooded the University of Tennessee campus Thursday morning to welcome the U.S. Olympic Swimming Team to East Tennessee.

Team USA held one-hour open practice and media session at UT's Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center in what was one of its final workouts before leaving for the upcoming London Games.

All the big names were in the water, including Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and 17-year-old sensation Missy Franklin.
