Federations may enter swimmers regardless of standard time as follows:

  • having no swimmer qualified: two (2) men and two (2) women;
  • having one (1) or two (2) swimmers qualified, additional swimmers up to a maximum of four (4) swimmers (two (2) men and two (2) women);
  • having three (3) swimmers qualified, one (1) additional swimmer provided that both gender are represented.

Swimmers entered without qualifying time must have participated in the National Championships of the Federation or in a FINA approved qualifying event. These swimmers will be allowed to enter in two (2) different events each, but they cannot swim in the same event, p.a. 50m Freestyle.
