We are using a two-tiered qualifying system for Tokyo this year (the Tokyo Winter Championships Meet, 12-15 March 2010).
Tier One: at least 4 swimmers in each age-group, each with at least one qualifying standard:
Tier Two: If there are not at least 4 swimmers in an age-group that have achieved a qualifying standard by the entry deadline (to be announced, the date will probably be 16 January 2010), then up to four "slots" will be filled in that age-group by the fastest swimmer in the 50 free, 50 fly, 50 breast, then 50 back. For example, if there are two swimmers in an age-group that have achieved qualifying times, two additional swimmers (making a total of four swimmers) will be selected for the meet based on those swimmer's best times as of the qualifying deadline.
