Men's NCAA Championships Delayed 24 Hours
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The start NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships has been delayed 24 hours and will now begin on Friday (March 26) and conclude on Sunday (March 28).
All events will remain in the same order with prelims beginning at 12 p.m. and finals at 7 p.m. The decision to delay the start of the meet came late Wednesday from the NCAA.
Eighteen student-athletes and one coach have been treated at the Ohio State University Medical Center and the Ohio State Sports Medicine Center for a possible gastrointestinal illness. The NCAA, the OSU Medical Center, Ohio State University officials and the local Ohio health department are working on the issue.
One of the priorities is to ensure all teams and competitors are kept informed of developments and preventive measures. The championship venue and facilities have been investigated and approved for use.
Fans with tickets to the NCAA Championships will be able to use Thursday session tickets for Friday, Friday session tickets for Saturday and Saturday session tickets for Sunday. Refunds will also be given through the Ohio State Ticket Office.
