Swimming at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games

Swimming competitions at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games was held at the OCBC Aquatic Centre in the Singapore Sports Hub in Kallang, Singapore from 6 to 11 June 2015. Built only a year earlier, the venue is hosting the Southeast Asian Games for the first time. It was used to host the second Southeast Asian Swimming Championships in 2014 as a test bed for the organisers, with the 2015 Southeast Asian Games volunteers roped in to also volunteer in the 2014 Swimming Championships to help in the familiarisation of the new venue.

Swimming
at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games
VenueOCBC Aquatic Centre, Kallang
Dates6–11 June 2015
Competitors129 from 9 nations
← 2013
2017 →

This Aquatics discipline featured 38 long course events: 19 for males and 19 for females.[1] This restores six events which were dropped by the previous host, Myanmar in the 2013 edition.

With swimming being a traditional gold mine for Singapore, there were high expectations for the squad to deliver another record haul of medals, especially given that Singapore is the host country. Two male athletes in particular, namely Joseph Schooling and Quah Zheng Wen were expected to shoulder the responsibility for the hosts, being entered in nine and 12 events respectively. Other athletes expected to shine include Quah Ting Wen, Tao Li and Danny Yeo.[2]

Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam were expecting to present the most resistance to Singapore's ambitions. Training in the United States, Nguyễn Thị Ánh Viên from Vietnam will potentially contest to become the most bemedalled athlete with 12 events to be contested.[3]

Participating nationsEdit

A total of 129 athletes from nine nations competed in swimming at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games:

EventsEdit

In most editions of the games, the swimming programme follows closely with the Olympics swimming programme, offering 32 pool events except the two 10 km open-water marathons. However, in 2011, six more non-Olympic events, namely the shorter 50 metre events for backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly were included. Although these were again dropped in 2013, Singapore re-introduced the 38-event programme to capitalise on its strength in swimming.

The following events were contested (all pool events were long course, and distances are in metres unless stated):

ScheduleEdit

The following is the competition schedule for the swimming competitions. As with previous editions of the games, the swimming programme schedule occurs in two segments, with the heats, if any, being conducted in the morning, followed by the final events during the evening sessions:
