[Update - 3:32pm, August 8]

Siobhan Haughey finished the 50 metre freestyle at 25.85 seconds, which ranks her in 37th place and places her in the Olympic B cut! 

Swimmers who achieve the A standard automatically qualify for the Olympics, while those with a B standard have a chance – but not a guarantee – of being selected.


[Update - 3pm, August 6]

Siobhan Haughey just finished the 100 metre freestyle. At 54.95 seconds, she achieved Olympic B standard and ranked 18th in the race, but she fell short of the 54.43 seconds required for direct qualification. 

Swimmers who achieve the A standard automatically qualify for the Olympics, while those with a B standard have a chance – but not a guarantee – of being selected.


Talented swimmer Siobhan Haughey is going to Rio Olympic Games next year, but right now she hopes to qualify in other distances at the Fina World Championships in Kazan, Russia.

The 17-year-old swimmer - and 2014 Student of the Year Sportsperson winner - Siobhan is representing Hong Kong in the World Championships. She has become the first Hong Kong swimmer to make the Olympic qualification A standard after she set a Hong Kong record in Sunday's women’s 200 metres individual medley.

Siobhan continues to compete in the World Championships in an attempt to qualify for other events of  the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Siobhan is competing in 100 metre freestyle tomorrow afternoon (HKT) and she stands the chance of getting into other Olympic events if she finished that at or under 54.43 seconds.

She will compete in the 50 metre freestyle on Saturday, and the Olympic qualifying time for that is 25.28 seconds.

From all of Young Post: good luck, Siobhan!

I just wanted to thank you for the information, it really necessary and timely for me at this time. Career choices are not merely looking for a job offer income because sometimes it will affect your whole life later. With many new people looking for work often go to work simply how to get a job matching capabilities, can provide income to cover life. The demand for employment as soon as possible sometimes make quick decisions and they forgot that profession is not simply what they do, but also can be an important crossroads in life.!
