To qualify for the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Malaysia this August 20-25, 2017, overseas based swimmers have to clock times at any of the qualifying meets of the 17th FINA World Swimming Championships in Budapest, as per the 2017 SEA Games Qualifying Guidelines released by Philippine Swimming Incorporated (PSI) last January 30 this year.
After clarifying with PSI whether overseas based swimmers can only select “one qualifying meet” as per their released guidelines; PSI has informed and confirmed with PinoySwimming dot Com that it has been changed.
Any Budapest Worlds qualifying meets between August 2016 to June 4, 2017 can now be accepted as qualifying times for the 2017 SEA Games.
Moreover, on or before March 31, overseas based swimmers are required by PSI to submit the list of the upcoming qualifying meets to PSI. They are also required to submit directly to PSI their official times clocked at the qualifying meet within two days of the meet conclusion. Swimmers may send their times to firstname.lastname@example.org and cc: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
The times clocked at any Budapest Qualifying meets will serve as the qualifying times for both 17th World Swimming Championships in Budapest this July, and 29th Southeast Asian Games in Malaysia this August.
Below are the list of Budapest World Championships qualifying meets in selected countries where our foreign based swimmers reside. Please note that foreign based swimmers can also swim in other World Champ qualifying meets outside the country where they reside.
