All of the Links You Need to Follow the 2013 FINA World Junior Championships

The 2013 FINA World Junior Championships begin on Monday in Dubai, UAE, and a slew of the world’s best swimmers will be in attendance for the 6-day meet.

FINA has touted this meet as the most participated meet in the four-version history of the meet with 900 athletes from 95 federations. This is not a flippant statistic, given the open qualification standards for the meet.

Our full coverage, as always, can be seen here. Bookmark it: we will have contributor Colin Blair on deck getting videos, pictures, and breaking

Go Brasil !!!

It is frustrating that the live stream does not show swimming when the meet starts, and even today, day 4, we still cannot watch it. It is especially heartbreaking for parents who have their kids there and not able to watch them. Really not sure what the issue it but extremely frustrating.

In the Time Zone section, it’s funny swimswam does not include the start times in the Mountain Time Zone. We are used to being ignored, but in this case USA Swimming is based in Colorado, so there may be a few people in the Mountain Time Zone who are watching.

That’s true, Braden. Mostly because we get lots of practice. 🙂

Question: Everywhere we look the prelims are listed as starting at 9 am Dubai time. I’m posting this at 9:15 Dubai time and the streaming link is not showing swimming. Two nights ago I noticed the streaming coverage of the prelims started at 10 am Dubai time. What am I missing?

Our niece, Bethany Leap, doesn’t swim until Day 6, so we have some time to figure this out, although we’ve been watching other events as well.

(We took Bethany to the Olympic Training Center in Colo. Springs a four years ago. Maybe for her next visit she’ll be in the pool.)

Thanks for all the info on your… Read more »

I looked at the results page and it shows the first heat was scheduled to start at 9:58 am Dubai time and several heats have finished. It’s now 10:15 Dubai time and the streaming site is not showing swimming. The heats were on Dubai Sports 1 the first two days. The streaming site says it’s showing Dubai Sports 3. (I checked Dubai Sports 1 and it’s showing the same feed as Dubai Sports 3.) Do you know if the prelims are no longer going to be streamed? Lots of parents must be heartbroken right now.

From now on I think Junior worlds will become more important meets. For example, Australia only sent very few swimmers in the past junior worlds, but this time they are sending full team, ditto with other swimming power nations such as USA, UK, Canada, etc.

Shame Denmark aren’t sending any of our junior swimmers. We probably haven’t got that many potential medalists but it would be great experience for them. I think just about everyone in Danish swimming is on holiday apart from our competitive lifesavers who’ve been doing well at the European championships.

Wow go mack horton, only day 1 heats but i can’t wait to see the 1500m

Also Tommy Sucipto (Australia) advanced to 100breast semis, and judging by his name, he is certainly from Indonesia (or his parents)

Shayna Jack, still 14 yo, split 2:00.12 in the 4x2free prelims

This bodes well for her individual swims, and she has big chance in the 50 free.
