2022 was an action-packed year.
In the aftermath of the postponed Tokyo Olympics in 2021, this year featured an unprecedented number of major international competitions: the World Championships, Commonwealth Games and European Championships took place within a two-month timeframe in the summer, and we also saw the world’s best juniors put their talents on display with World Juniors, Euro Juniors and Junior Pan Pacs on the calendar.
In a year that saw numerous exceptional performances, things closed off with a bang last week at the Short Course World Championships, with 14 world records going down.
2022 had a bit of everything, and now that it’s coming to a close, it’s time for our annual Swammy Awards to be handed out. We’ll keep track of all of our winners below.
