Each swimming event is broken up into rounds with the purpose of trimming the field of competitors (which can sometimes number upwards of 90+ for individual events) down to a final race of eight. Individual events at distances of 200m and shorter require three rounds: preliminary heats, semifinals, and a final. Each athlete participates in one of several preliminary heats in hopes of recording a top-16 time, thereby advancing to the semifinals.

From there, the eight fastest swimmers across both semifinal heats advance to the final. Individual events at distances of 400m or longer, along with all relay events, do not include a semifinal round. In these events, only the top eight swimmers or teams across the preliminary heats advance to the final. In the event of a tie for the final lane in a semifinal or final round, tied competitors swim an additional head-to-head race to determine who advances. This is also known as a “”swim off””. Olympic swimming competition days generally contain two sessions: one for only preliminary heats, and a second for semifinals and finals. The exceptions are the first day of competition, which lacks a semifinal/final session, and the last day, which does not contain a heats session.

  5. H.C. Collier on August 1, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    The announcers are pathetic as sports commentators. They are cheer leaders, NOT analysts. During the race they discuss everything but the race. PATHETIC.

  24. prattacaster on August 1, 2021 at 9:42 pm

  28. Shar on August 1, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    one difference between Elizabeth Beisel and Rowdy Gaines as commentators. Elizabeth slipping up and saying that Katie Ledecky is not in her prime at these games.



  29. Nock Nock on August 1, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Bacon is such an awesome last name.

    “Bacon for the lead!!!! It’s bacon coming in strong. It’s BACON! BACON BACON BACON!!!!!”

    Think about the food sponsors she could get (unless she’s actually Vegan)



  34. Tickle on August 1, 2021 at 9:54 pm
