  • Requests for official splits must be made to the meet management prior to the start of the meet.

(ie: if a swimmer is swimming a 100 or 200 free you can ask to get an official 50m split time. This way they do not have to swim the 50m event, but you will still have a time to help decide what events to enter at summer games. See note above.)
