FINA World Top 10 Swimmers

Masters Swimming Queensland would like to congratulate these swimmers for making the FINA Masters Top 10 for 2019. Each year FINA publishes the top 10 times for each event in each age group across the world for both Short Course (SC) and Long Course (LC). It is a pretty big deal to make the top 10 in the world! You can find this data here.

In 2019, 117 Australian Masters swimmers made these lists. Here they are in age group order:
