QUIZ: Can You Name Every World Swimming Champion Of the 2010s?

Can you name every individual World Champion in swimming in the past decade?

Test your knowledge with our latest quiz, which compiles the gold medalists in every individual event from the 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 FINA World Swimming Championships.

A few notes:

  • The quiz only covers long course World Championships – not the short course version
  • The time period is the decade of the 2010s – that means the 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 World Championships
  • Individual events only – relays not included
  • Pool swimming only – not open water
  • The quiz accepts first & last names, or last names only. We’ve tried to cover some common misspellings, but you’ll need to at least be in the ballpark
  • Swimmers are listed with their country and with the events where they won a World Championships gold medal

Spelling is hard! If you accepted first name only I would have gotten 8 more.

63/77. Forgot a lot of the stroke 50’s and some from the 2011 worlds, not to mention it took me a minute to try and type “Aleksandra Gerasimenya”

53/77. It’s amazing how long a decade is. I completely forgot about the likes of Rebecca Soni and Ye Shiwen. Liam Tancock was in this decade? Yannick Angel. My brain was thinking way to recently.
