The Brazilian swimming federation has released the event schedule for its four-swimmer Olympic Trials Time Trial meet this weekend.

The two-day meet will feature four sessions with just a handful of time-trial events in each session. Alexia Assuncao, Maria Luiza Pessanha, Vinicius Assuncao and Viviane Jungblut will compete in the meet, per BestSwimming.br. All four are members of the Brazilian Junior National team who missed the official Olympic Trials meet in April due to positive COVID-19 tests.

In order to qualify for the Brazilian Olympic Team, the swimmers must get under the FINA “A-cut” in their events. In addition, for races where several swimmers have already qualified for the Olympic Games, the swimmers must best the second-placed time from the original trials meet. For the 100 freestyle and 200 freestyle, where relay qualification is at stake, the swimmer must better the 4th-placed time from the selection meet.

Different pools, different conditions. Some countries have a single meet. Some have a qualification period. Brazil just makes it up as they go along…
