As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, Swimming Canada has invoked the unexpected circumstances clause of its Olympic team nomination criteria, and is postponing the Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials until late May. Swimming Canada will also plan a supplementary Olympic qualifying opportunity in June.

The clause allows the Swimming Canada Selection Committee to determine if unexpected or unusual circumstances have arisen during the process of applying these Criteria and have the full and absolute discretion to resolve the matter as it sees fit, taking into account factors and circumstances that it deems relevant. Any such exercise of discretion shall be subject to the Canadian administrative law principles of fairness.


The following swimmers have been provisionally nominated by Swimming Canada’s Selection Committee for the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, for the following specific individual events:


Kylie Masse (Lasalle, Ontario), 100m and 200m backstroke
Margaret Mac Neil (London, Ontario), 100m butterfly
Penny Oleksiak (Toronto, Ontario), 200m freestyle
Sydney Pickrem (Halifax, Nova Scotia), 200m breaststroke, 200m and 400m individual medley
Taylor Ruck (Kelowna, British Columbia), 100m freestyle
Markus Thormeyer (Delta, British Columbia), 200m backstroke
