Records & Top 10

World Rankings for 2012

The world swimming federation FINA (“Federation Internationale de Natation”) has published the Top 10 world rankings for masters swimmers for the year 2012. Basides the expanded competition, keep in mind the following differences between FINA and USMS rankings:

  • FINA considers “masters” swimming to begin at age 25, so there is no 18-24 age group for individual swims, and relays cannot have swimmers under 25.
  • There are rankings for two courses, SCM (25m pools) and LCM (50m pools).
  • FINA only considers times from meets sanctioned by USMS (or another FINA member). This means that times from recognized meets are not eligible for FINA rankings. In particular, times from Virginia Senior Games (SCM) and the Commonwealth Games (LCM) held in LCM do not count for FINA. Neither do swims by USMS members in USA-S meets.

With those caveats in mind, 13 members of our LMSC have achieved a total of 54 world-ranked swims in 2012. Shirley Loftus-Charley led the way with 12 ranked swims, including four top-ranked efforts; Beth Schreiner and Chris Stevenson also had 7 swims apiece. Complete details of the swims, as well as world-ranked efforts in previous years, can be found elsewhere on our website.

The latest world-ranked swims are shown below. Congratulations to all these swimmers!
