San Diego-Imperial Swimming has released the final draft of the Junior Olympic Time Standards for the 2012 competition year.  Junior Olympic time standards are set locally here in San Diego and are recomputed annually to select approximately the 24 fastest swimmers in each event based upon the average results for the event over the past 3 – 5 years.  These time standards can, and often do, change by small amounts from year to year in order to keep up with advances (and sometimes declines) in the various age/gender groups. For 2012, approximately 50% of the time standards were changed, with almost all of the adjustments resulting in faster time standards.  Note: These time standards have not yet been approved by the SI Swimming Board of Directors, and will be voted upon at the upcoming Board meeting in November.  However, it is unlikely they will change unless an administrative or computational error is discovered.
