QUIZ: Can You Name The Top 3 Swimmers of 2020 In Each Long Course Event?

It was a weird, pandemic-affected swimming season – but can you name the swimmers with the top 3 times in each long course event for 2020?

A few notes on this quiz:

  • Times include all official swims in the calendar year 2020 – that means from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
  • Last names only will be accepted, along with first and last names.
  • If two swimmers are tied for a spot, either name should get you credit.
  • Answers are based on the official FINA world rankings, so any time missing from that database wouldn’t appear on this quiz.
  • Long course meters (LCM) only

I can’t believe I didn’t get Ippei Watanabe. His namesake, Kanako Watanabe, buggered me up on the female World Champions list too. Damn.
