Swimming at the 2020 Summer Olympics – Aquatics Schedule

A Day In the Life of a Swimmer: Charles Vaughan

The swimming competitions at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will feature a record 37 events, up from 34 in 2016. The added events are the 800 metre freestyle for men, the 1500 metre freestyle for women and a 4×100 mixed medley relay.
FINA will establish qualifying times for individual events. The time standards consisted of two types: an “Olympic Qualifying Time” (OQT) and an “Olympic Selection time” (OST). Each country was able to enter up to two swimmers per event, provided both swimmers met the (faster) qualifying time. A country was able to enter one swimmer per event that met the invitation standard. Any swimmer who met the “qualifying” time was entered in the event for the Games; a swimmer meeting the “invitation” standard was eligible for entry, and their entry was allotted/filled in by ranking. If a country had had no swimmers who meet either qualifying standard, it may have entered one male and one female. A country that did not receive an allocation spot but had at least one swimmer who met a qualifying standard might have enter the swimmer with the highest ranking. – Wikipedia
