2006 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships

The tenth edition of the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, a long course (50 m) event, was held in 2006 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, from August 17–20. Six world records were tallied compared to one from the 2002 edition. This edition was slower than it would have been because of the lack of a full strength Australian team, one of the strongest teams in the world. This made it a common situation that swimmers in the B final were swimming fast enough to place in the top 3 since no country is allowed to have more than 2 swimmers in either final heat.

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. ^ Brendan Hansen also broke the meet record in preliminaries (1:00.17).
  2. ^ Kosuke Kitajima broke the record first in an earlier preliminary heat (2:10.61), followed by Brendan Hansen in the next heat (2:10.37).
  3. ^ Ian Crocker also broke the meet record in preliminaries (51.78).
  4. ^ Occurred in the relay lead-off for the 4×100 m freestyle relay. Natalie Coughlin also broke the meet record in the preliminaries of the 100 m freestyle (53.83).
  5. ^ Takami Igarashi also broke the meet record in preliminaries (2:10.02).
  6. ^ Pan-Pacific rules state that each country may only have two swimmers in the championship ("A") final. Even though Jessica Hardy was the third fastest swimmer in preliminaries, two United States swimmers were faster than she, and therefore she was placed in the consolation ("B") final. Since she was in the consolation final, the highest she could place was ninth place, even though she swam the fastest time and broke the meet record.
  7. ^ Katie Hoff also broke the meet record in preliminaries (2:12.45).
