I know Pallister hit the AQT, but shouldn’t the fact that she placed third not make her a “qualifier” yet? (that could change if 1 or 2 differ)

This is meant to show swimmers who hit the QT outright. That’s why I put the 3rd place indicator next to the appropriate names.

But the qualifying standard states: finish in f first 2 and meet the time criteria. Pallister cannot be selected to the team on the basis of her swim, and Graham hasn’t qualified for an individual event, although will definitely go as a relay swimmer.

Good idea since the selection criteria is quite specific when it says finish 1-2 and achieve the qualifying time and not the other way around

Kareena Lee and Moesha Johnson hit the 1500 qualifying time too.
