High-Level International Meets For May 2021

We are now fewer than 100 days away from the start of the postponed 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. The month of April already saw some high-profile nation’s trials take place to the tune of Japan and Great Britain, but May brings more of the same with Canadian Trials and the Pro Swim slated for Indianapolis.

Plus, the European Championships are on the agenda for May 10th – May 23rd, with the event representing many nation’s last-chance Olympic qualification opportunity.

Bottom line, nearly every day has swimming action on the calendar for May, which makes this one fun month.

Take a look at the lineup below and let me know in the comments of any meets I may have inadvertently missed.
