2019-2020 US National Team Qualifying Closes: Projected Roster Here

Throughout the summer, we’ve been tracking the top 6 American swimmers in each Olympic event – those in line to make the 2019-2020 U.S. National Team. Qualifying closed as of Sunday, and although the team isn’t officially selected until early September, we can project the top 6 in each event over the qualifying period.

SELECTION CRITERA:

Here’s a look at how the 2019-2020 U.S. National Team will be selected. You can see the full criteria here.

  • Top 6 athletes in each individual Olympic event
    • as determined by FINA.org’s World Rankings from January 1, 2019 through August 25, 2019
    • Rankings will be pulled from the FINA site on September 3 (giving swimmers a chance to make sure their time is included in the database)
  • Prelims, semifinals and finals (A, B, C and D) from all USA Swimming or FINA sanctioned meets are eligible
  • Relay leadoffs, time trials, swim-offs and intermediate splits are not eligible

Note: we did our best to pull out the top 6 swimmers over the qualifying period while factoring out time trials and relay leadoffs, but it’s possible we missed a swim or two here. If you notice one, please let us know in the comments and we will update accordingly. Just don’t bring up Regan Smith‘s medley relay leadoff or so help me God, I will pull this car over.

Projected National Team

Note that these are the projected members, but the roster is not officially selected until September 3. Time changes in the FINA database or other changes in eligibility could still affect this roster.

Might as well get this out of the way now….
Why is Smith’s 100 Back time not 57…?

Relay leadoffs are not considered in the national team selection.

There is a real “changing of the guard” going on, more & more each passing period. Now let’s see what happens at the US OT next year.

Jared Anderson swam for nearly twenty years. Then, Jared Anderson stopped swimming and started writing about swimming. He's not sick of swimming yet. Swimming might be sick of him, though.
