QualificationEdit

The women's 10 km open water marathon at the 2020 Olympics will feature a field of 25 swimmers:[2]

  • 10: the top-10 finishers in the 10 km races at the 2019 World Aquatics Championships (maximum of 2 per NOC)
  • 9: the top-9 finishers at the 2020 Olympic Marathon Swim Qualifier, open only to NOCs with no qualified swimmers (maximum of 1 per NOC)
  • 5: one representative from each FINA continent (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania), based on the finishes at the 2020 Olympic Qualifier
  • 1: from the host nation (Japan) if not qualified by other means. If Japan already has a qualifier in the race, this spot is allocated back into the general pool from the 2020 Olympic Qualifier.

Competition formatEdit

Unlike all of the other swimming events in the pool, the men's and women's marathon 10 kilometre races are held in open water. No preliminary heats are held, with only the single mass-start race being contested. This race is held using freestyle swimming, with a lack of stroke regulations.[3]
