QUALIFICATION

The meet will act as a qualifier for all of the major international meets this summer, including the World Championships in Gwangju. In order to assure a spot on that team, a swimmer must place in the top-2 in an Olympic event and be under the FINA ‘A’ standard, or place top-4 in the 100 and 200 freestyle and be under the ‘B’ standard.

You can find full World Championship qualifying info here.

Traditionally, the 150 IM has no butterfly. The IPC recognizes the event for classifications SM 4, SM3, SM2, and SM1.

The comment was intended to be a joke in that almost all of the athletes are Canadian with almost no other competition. There was no intent to slight Canadians, who are doing great!
