About importing results

Results are imported from various sources with the use of a program created by LifesavingRankings.com. Most of these are in PDF format, which makes importing complicated due to the vast amount of different formats. Errors are easily made using this error-prone method.
Please report missing competitions or any mistakes you may find to results@lifesavingrankings.com.

A common problem when importing results is duplicated athletes. An athlete's name cannot be matched when it's spelled slightly different. When this happens, a new profile is created. You can easily report these duplicated profiles by searching for an athlete, selecting the duplicates and hit the button at the top of the results: 'Report selected athletes as duplicates'.

About points

Points allows for comparison between different events and genders. The formula used to calculate points is created by FINA. For more background info see the swimrankings.net wiki.
The base times are defined every year, based on the latest World Record as recorded by LifesavingRankings.com. The cut off date is December 31st.

A total score is displayed on every athlete profile. This score is the sum of points of the athlete's best performances on the main six events.
