The German Swimming Association (DSV) announced the swimmers for the Mare Nostrum Tour 2016 in Monte Carlo, Monaco, Canet-en-Roussillon, France and Barcelona, Spain.
Short reminder of German Olympic qualification procedure: The 2016 German National Championships were the first part of a two-step nomination procedure for the Olympic Games. The athletes had to swim defined times at National Championships in prelims and in finals. All swimmers who achieved the times will be part of the so-called “long list” and informed German Head Coach Henning Lambertz in the period of one week after German Nationals in which meet they want to confirm the required performance of the nomination process: at one of the three meets of the Mare Nostrum tour or the German Open. They can only choose ONE of these four possibilities. For this meet, other times are set which are approximately 1,5 % slower than those at German nationals. All swimmers who reach the times and have also finished first or second at the German National Championships will qualify for Rio.
The upcoming Mare Nostrum Tour with three stops is one possibility for the pre-qualified German swimmers to get the ticket to Rio. But it hasn’t been reported by the German Swimming Asscociation (DSV) which swimmer will try to qualify finally for Rio at which meet.
