FINA To Establish “Junior World Records” in Swimming for 14-17 Girls, 15-18 Boys

At their bureau meeting in Cancun, Mexico this week, FINA voted to establish FINA Swimming World Junior Records for boys aged 15-18 and girls aged 14-17.

But you won’t see many of the heroes of the past on this list; that’s because, like all of the recently added FINA World Records, they won’t look backwards for records, they will only proceed forward.

To be established as a World Record, a swim will have to clear the World Junior Championship Record after last year’s FINA Junior World Championships (which are listed below). They gave no indication that those would be considered Junior World Records at any time, rather that the records would remain blank until those times were cleared.

Most of these records were set at the 2013 edition of the event in Dubai, UAE.

The current Junior World Championship Records are as follows:

While this is a cool idea, I don’t understand why not back-populate with the real records. FINA has all the results, they should be able to pretty easily establish what the historic best times were, or at least open up to submissions. It seems incomplete and lazy to create such a records list and leave the likes of Thorpe, Ledecky, and Phelps off of it.

aswimfan

I think FINA realizes that if they recognize Thorpe’s, Phelps’, Gyurta’s, Campbell’s, Ledecky’s etc they will have to wait for DECADES before those standards get broken.

Sean S

But they would actually mean something when they are broken as opposed to these “records”

Atento

Fina should have all the results to make a real list with real junior world records…you have phelps, thorpe, izotov, maybe hacket, maybe lazlo cshe, maybe peirsol, maybe yamaguchi ledecky, franklin… It’s kind of a shame that you don’t list the amazing achivments of two monster swimmers that at 15 were being world champions and world record holders like Phelps and thorpe. Ridiculous

beachmouse

Mary Meagher’s junior butterfly times were a lot faster than here as well.

Rafael

Just seeing a little.. times that would be there

Thorpe 200 400 800
Sun Yang 1500 (14:48)
Gyurta 200 Breast
Phelps 200 fly
And some others maybe

aswimfan

Cate Campbell in 50/100 free
Missy in 100/200 back
Ledecky in 400/800/1500 free
Ye Shiwen in 200/400 IM

Scuba Steve

Actually 200 would be Izotov 1:43.90 and 1,500 would be Perkins 14:43.48 and 200 Breast would be Yamaguchi 2:07.84
