Per the Brazilian Olympic Selection Policy, should no athlete or just one athlete achieve the mark during finals next week, additional slots will be opened up to swimmers who met the standard at the following previously-held competitions:

  • 2023 World Championships, Fukuoka, Japan (heats, semi-final, final)
  • 2023 World Junior Championships, Netanya, Israel (heats, semi-final, final)
  • 2023 World University Games, Chengdu, China (heats, semi-final, final)
  • 2023 Pan American Games, Santiago, Chile (final)
  • 2023 Jose Finkel Trophy, Brazil (final)
  • 2024 World Championships, Doha, Qatar (final)

As we reported in February, six swimmers have hit CBDA Olympic qualification times and will likely represent Brazil in Paris. Their spots will be guaranteed unless two other Brazilia swimmers nail cuts in the same events next week.

The swimmers in this grouping include Beatriz DizottiGabrielle RoncattoMaria Fernanda CostaKayky MotaGuilherme Costa, and Gui Caribe.

Additionally, 2020 Olympic bronze medalist in the men’s 50m freestyle Bruno Fratus has already announced he will not seek 2024 Olympic qualification. The 34-year-old speedster has dropped out of the running due to ongoing injuries and multiple surgeries.

This is the first Olympic Trials for the University of Louisville standout Nicholas Albiero as a Brazilian. The once-U.S. national teamer is ’embracing his family heritage’ by switching to Brazil, training with club MTC Natação and living in Belo Horizonte.

Brazil finished 10th in the overall swimming medal table at the 2020 Olympic Games, garnering 3 medals. Fratus scored 50m free bronze while teammate Fernando Scheffer earned bronze in the 200m free. Ana Marcela Cunha captured gold in the women’s 10k open water swim.
