PHOENIX, Arizona, December 2. WONDERING how Swimming World Magazine names its World and Regional swimmers every year? Read about the voting process in this month's Voice for the Sport, explained by managing editor Jason Marsteller.

In order to be partial to each region, every year a panel of international Swimming World Magazine judges cast their voting ballots for World and Regional Swimmers of the Year. These judges rank their top-five athletes in each category. Points are awarded for each ranking, which are then totaled up to produce the final results.
