Swimming Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee have announced Canada’s swimming team nominated to compete at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
A total of 26 swimmers will represent the country in the Japanese capital, including 16 female and 10 male athletes.
Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Swimming Canada’s Selection Committee had provisionally nominated six pool swimmers back in January. Most of the remaining pool athletes qualified for Team Canada based on their performances at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Swimming Trials, presented by Bell, which took place from June 19 to 23 at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre.
Additionally, two open water swimmers qualified based on their results at the FINA Olympic Marathon Swim Qualifier, held June 19 and 20 in Setubal, Portugal.
