024 10 BEST PERFORMANCES OF 2016
by David Rieder
During an Olympic year, there’s a plethora of performances that could rank among the year’s best. And that’s not even taking into account the record-breaking swims around the world during the lead-up to the Games…or the stellar short course yards performances in the United States. Needless to say, we had some good options from which to choose for the top 10 races of the year.

ON THE COVER
We at Swimming World always look forward to working on the December issue because it includes our World and Regional Swimmers of the Year. It’s also an opportunity for us to review what we believe are the 10 Best Performances of 2016. We’re certain you recognize that guy on the cover—Michael Phelps. And, yes, our 15-member international panel selected him as our Male World and American Swimmer of the Year for the eighth time in his legendary career. With Phelps insisting he is retired for good, Swimming World—and the “swimming world”—will miss him, but wish the “Greatest of All Time” the very best.
