About the 18 & Under World Ranking (from USA Swimming)
Selection Criteria: The 18 & Under World 100 is a ranking of the best 18 & under swimmers in the United States, according to their 18 & under world ranking. The goal of the program is to acknowledge the excellence achieved by our best 18 & under athletes, their coaches who lead them and their clubs who support them. The athlete must be a registered USA Swimming member at the time of the qualifying performance. The athlete must be eligible to represent the U.S. in international competition as of September 2, 2019. The athlete must be 18 or under on September 2, 2019 (born on, or after, September 2, 2000).
Performance Criteria: Everyone who meets the general and performance criteria and has an 18 & under world ranking of #1-100 (subject to the database dates provided below) will be recognized as a USA Swimming World 100 athlete. Athletes will be ranked according to their highest 18 & under world ranking in an individual Olympic event. In the event that two athletes have the same 18 & under world rank, the tie will be broken based on the athlete with the highest FINA points. Should there be a tie in FINA points, there will be no tie breaker. To be qualified, times were considered from January 1, 2019, through and including December 15, 2019, from all USA Swimming and FINA approved competitions.
