The Swedish Swimming Federation has finalized their 12-swimmer roster for the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games that will kick off on July 27th, and the most notable thing about the locked-down list is that there was no last-second addition of National 200 IM Record holder Simon Sjodin. If you’ll recall, there was a last-second push via petition from other of Sweden’s elite swimmers to convince their Olympic committee that his 22nd-ranked swim in the 200 IM was worth a spot in the Olympics.
Despite getting 1,067 names onto the list, the push still came up short and there was no last-second salvation.
Also absent from the list is former Arizona State All-American Rebecca Ejdervik. She made a last-second effort to grab a second sprint spot in June at the Sette Colli Trophy, but apparently came up short of the standards with a 1:08.94.
Sweden has also rounded out their full aquatics lineup with two divers, including Anna Lindberg, a 6-time European Champion between the two springboard events. She will compete on the 3-meter in London (there is no 1-meter event at the Olympic level).
