2018 Youth Olympic Games

The entry lists for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games have been revealed ahead of the Opening Ceremonies that are scheduled for Saturday evening in Buenos Aires.

While no single-document entry list is available, event-by-event (and athlete-by-athlete) lists are posted.

The top 16 nations at the 2017 FINA World Aquatics Championships were allowed to invite up to 4 male and 4 female swimmers. Argentina, as the hosts, also receive 4 male and 4 female entries.

After that group, there are 112 universality places available for swimmers who hit a certain minimum performance set by FINA and chosen by a Tripartate Commission.

To be eligible to participate in the Youth Olympic Games, athletes must have been born between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2003.

In total, 140 nations have sent representatives to the meet. Only 13 of the 16 countries eligible to send a full complement of participants have done so (Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, United States), while Sweden, the Netherlands, and Great Britain declined, with the British not sending a team at all.

Nguyen Huy Hoang from Vietnam will win the 800m freestyle. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST 😉

Everyone who has followed the Asian Games would make the same prediction.😉Would like to see a south east Asian swimmer win at international stage.

Joseph Schooling for example 🙂

Is anyone even close to his time in the 800m freestyle?
Also he has a 1500m time that is almost 6 seconds faster than Michael Brinegar… that is nuts and he is dropping time like crazy… (15:19 to 15:01 in 6 months)

Hung

Huy Hoàng will champion 800m freestyle time about 7’50(s). trust me
