High-Level International Meets For April 2021

The postponed Olympic Games are set to kick-off on July 23rd, which means we’re fewer than 130 days from the world’s biggest competitive sporting event.

We now enter the time frame in which many nations are hosting their one-shot Olympic Trials meets, including Japan, South Africa and Great Britain. Swimmers will be put to the test against not only their peers but also against the oftentimes stiff qualifying procedures established by their home nations in order to represent their flag in Tokyo.
