Pacific Rim Swimmers of the Year Ballotmembers

PHOENIX, Arizona, November 1. LATER this month, we will begin announcing the Swimming World World and Regional Swimmers of the Year, an annual celebration of the sport that culminates with our December issue.

Up until this year, only our panelists had access to the ballot while voting on the various categories. This year, we've decided to open up the process heading into our announcements with the December issue.

To be eligible to be on the ballot, a swimmer must: Set a long course or short course world record, or finish the season with a textile best, or rank #1 in the world in a long course event, or win an individual medal at the World Long Course Championships, or Top 10 world ranking in a long course event, or be the top ranked swimmer within your region in a long course event if not ranked in the top 10.

Our panelist must then select a top five for each category, placing a 1-5 designation next to their top-five swimmers where 1 equals their top choice and 5 equals their fifth-ranked vote.
