With the next edition of the Summer Olympic Games fewer than 1 year away, swimmers are narrowing their focus once again on their Tokyo target now that coronavirus-pandemic-related restrictions are slowly continuing to be lifted.
While some swimmers are just now getting back to even being able to practice, such as those in Northern Ireland and Scotland, others are engaging in their first competitions after several weeks or even months-long lockdown.
Below are the high-level international meets as we know them for the month of August, but calendars are still taking shape minute-by-minute. Let me know in the comments of any I may have missed.
