Welcome to our collation of specials. Below you can find links to coverage that will serve as a permanent reference point to specific events such as the Swimming World Championships, Olympic Games, the SwimVortex Swim League of Nations and our tribute to Nick Thierry.
It is a quarter of a century since Matt Biondi, Janet Evans, Anthony Nesty, Krizstina Egerszegi, Tamas Darnyi, Duncan Armstrong, Vladimir Salnikov and Michael Gross stole the Olympic headlines in the pool that hosted the last Games before the fall of the Berlin Wall. We start our special with Matt Biondi’s reflections on a soaring seven-medal-winning performance.
Reviews on the word from the water
The Premiership of the best 20 swimming nations in the world, a league based on results from Olympic Games, World Championships, World Rankings and Records in each passing season.
Our tribute to the late founder and publisher of SwimNews, Nick Thierry, who passed away in October, 2012. The guardian and gatekeeper of swimming statistics, rankings and history for more than 30 years, he is much missed by all those who knew him and worked with him.
