    2019 USA Swimming Key Event Calendar

    What’s the next best thing to an Olympic year in the sport of swimming? The pre-Olympic year! 2019 will be a big year for the world’s best swimmers in their preparation for Tokyo 2020 and a huge opportunity for younger competitors to get experience on the world stage at the 2019 FINA World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea if they hope to make a mark next summer.

    But while it’s an important year for Olympic preparation, 2019 success does not mean guaranteed gold in 2020. Only one men’s individual event, the 100m breaststroke won by Adam Peaty, had the same winner at the 2015 Worlds and 2016 Olympics. On the women’s side, only three swimmers – Katie Ledecky, Sarah Sjostrom and Katinka Hosszu – pulled off the 2015 World and 2016 Olympic double.

    So while the World Championships are the biggest event on the USA Swimming calendar this year, it might be what’s happening in the training pool that is the most important of all. Here are 10 key events on this year’s USA Swimming Calendar to look out for in 2019.
