We have 90 days left until the start of the 17. FINA World Championships and these days the world rankings are changing minute after minute. Still we intend to provide a momentary status report about where the top competitors are at the moment.

Let us see some curiosities while browsing women’s rankings. Contrary to men the year did not kick off with a big bang, moreover, almost 4 months passed and there has not been any world record until now. (We do hope that the best swimmers save their best performances for July.)

90 percent of top3 competitors swam their time this month, since many national championships were or are being held in April, which are World Championships qualification races as well.

Swedish Sarah Sjostrom, who won 100 m butterfly with world record time in Rio, is present on the lists multiple times, she owns the best time this year in 50 and 100 m freestyle, 50 and 100m butterfly.

Speaking about freestyle we must mention Katie Ledecky, who triumphed in Kazan and in Rio, won from 200 m to 1500 m in the World Championships and from 200 m to 800 m in the Olympics. Now she leads only in the ranking of 400 and 800 m, but Ledecky had her first race in an Olympic-sized pool since Rio Games last week, and she needs to tune up for the American Championships in June as well as for the World Championships in July. 

This week many Chinese and Japanese swimmers forged ahead in the rankings, since their national championships were held currently, Chinese excelled in backstroke, Japanese in butterfly and medley events. 

Hungary is represented by Boglárka Kapás, who owns third best time this year in 1500 m freestyle. She made her time of 16:12.86 in Golden Tour Marseilles in March, but we should not forget that the Hungarian National Swimming championships will take place on 19-22 April, so some excellent Hungarian results are expected by the end of next week.

In addition to the swimmers mentioned above, world rankings feature some other well-known names such as Mireia Belmonte Garcia, Yulia Efimova or Emily Seebohm, but teenage rising stars have emerged as well, including Australian Ariarne Titmus or Italian Simona Quadarella, who both excelled in longer freestyle events in their own national championships., so It will worth watching them in the World Championships, too.
