FINA announces schedule for 2015 World Junior Championships in Singapore

FINA has announced the official dates and event schedule for the next World Junior Championships, to happen in 2015 in Singapore.

The meet will take place from September 1st to September 6th of 2015, which is about a week later than the last championships, held in Dubai back in 2013.

The event order will stay the same, though, as will the start times: prelims will kick off at 9 AM and finals 6 PM local time.

The meet will feature boys ages 15-18 and girls aged 14-17 based on FINA’s age criteria, which go by year of birth. Athletes are classified based on their age on December 31st of the year of competition, so boys born anytime during 1997, 1998, 1999 or 2000 are considered “Juniors” for the meet, no matter what their actual age on competition day, while girls born in 1998, 1999, 2000 or 2001 are eligible. The upshot of all this is that male athletes who are 18 during the meet dates but turn 19 between September and December will not be eligible to compete. The same goes for girls who turn 18 during that time frame.

Here are how the events spread out over the 6-day meet, according to the FINA website:

What are the qualifying times for each and every events that are going to be held for the junior world championships in Singapore 2015

Wow – this is really a late date for this meet. Means that US high school swimmers will need to miss the first two weeks of school!

Based on the people who went to the last Jr Worlds (Dressel, Sedov, Solnceva, Ustinova) every country must send their best, cause some real high quality swims will probably happen.. much better than focusing on some start of HS meet for sure..
