8 Olympic Selection Time (OST) (correspond to the “old” B Time) After considering entries for athletes achieving OQT, relay swimmers and universality places, athletes with OST will be invited until the 900-quota is achieved. These entry places will be allocated through the FINA Rankings for Olympic qualification. The total number of athletes will be equally distributed throughout the 26 individual events. (In case the number of swimmers in one event is not sufficient to cover the OST available places, an additional place in all events will be taken into account. Through the FINA Points Table, the missing places will then be selected.) Athletes invited to participate 8
