Swimming Roster Index For the Tokyo Summer Olympics

Around the world, nations are setting and finalizing their rosters for the Tokyo Summer Olympics. We’re keeping track of every roster we can find in this handy index.

We’ll continue updating this index throughout the spring and summer, adding in rosters as they are set and/or finalized. We’ll do our best to keep up with additional qualifiers and to add in rosters as they become available. If you have a link to an official roster not linked below, let us know in the comments and we’ll start verifying and adding those rosters to the index.

Below, we’ve listed every member federation of FINA, the international governing body for swimming. Not all of these nations will necessarily be represented in the Olympics, but it gives us a solid starting point for our world-level index. We’ve organized countries by their FINA continental association, and within each continent, the nations are listed alphabetically.

The Tokyo Olympics are still known as the 2020 Summer Olympics and still retain that branding, though they’ll actually be happening in 2021 after a one-year delay amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Click on any nation for a link to its Olympic roster. We’ll make notes where we can about rosters that are in flux or not yet finalized.
