A record-breaking year!
The swimmers compete in groups to achieve the fastest time possible, over a specified distance and using a predetermined swimming stroke such as butterfly, backstroke, freestyle or breaststroke. This is an exciting event to watch, as mere seconds can make all the difference to the swimmers' times. Many personal bests and world record times have been achieved at the Games in years gone by. The fastest stroke of all is considered to be the front crawl, which most swimmers understandably opt for as their freestyle choice. The top male swimmers in the world can achieve the impressive time of just 21 seconds over a swimming distance of 50m. The addition of a men’s 800m freestyle, a women’s 1500m freestyle and a mixed 4 x 100m medley relay makes a record number of events featuring in the Games.

Dive in to the action!
Individual heats at the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Swimming tickets include the engaging medley competition, in which swimmers perform a number of strokes in turn from the butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and finish up with the freestyle. As their strength may lie more heavily in one stroke than another, this is an exciting tournament to watch, as the swimmers results may greatly vary in each category. The challenging butterfly stroke that made its debut in the 1956 Games has its origins in the breaststroke. The butterfly stroke involves swimmers bringing their hands forward and above the water to cut down on water resistance. The arm actions resemblance to a butterfly gives it its popular name, whilst the legs perform a dolphin-like kick. The 2020 Tokyo Games also feature Open Water Swimming for both genders over a distance of 10 km, 2020 Games in Tokyo: Surfing, 2020 Games in Tokyo: Artistic Swimming and a multitude of land-based contests.
